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.

Any one up for tonight's destination? Looks like I might get a light tailwind home for a change.

Tom, surely those words should be followed by "Mr Peevly" ?!?

Re: White Swan Conington

Count me in too! Dom will join us at the pub.

Re: White Swan Conington

I'm not sure I'd qualify for the Hair Bear Bunch these days, Duncan!

Re: White Swan Conington

I'll be out with a cunning plan!

Re: White Swan Conington

My apologies for dropping Duncan on leaving the pub. Its just that I knew a shortcut, and used it!
