DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Mr Tickell - The Last of the Winter Rides

Daylight (well, twilight) returns to the CAMMTB runs next week.

Anyone fancy a bimble in the last (hopefully) vestiges of winter tonight? There may be crackling....

Sadly not - I am still hosting an unwelcome guest from India....

Runs list has a 'hole' new meaning.

There has been sufficient crackling already.

Re: Mr Tickell - The Last of the Winter Rides

Oh dear! I hope that Julie is making sure that the Andrex is suitably chilled.
