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.

Beer and Malteasers

It's Thursday and i'm planning to put in an apperance on the ride tonight, but riding slowly and carefully at the back, and not leading the charge...... unless no one else is out.

so it's The Queens Head, Newton ..... my favourite pub and they sell chocolate too :)

anyone else coming out? it might even dry out a bit.

Re: Beer and Malteasers

I'm planning to be out and will be looking to thrash around as fast as I possibly can.

I'll be at the back.

Re: Beer and Malteasers

Me - I'm out and likely to be at the back. Unless everyone is at the back, in which case I'll be in the peleton.

PT

Re: Beer and Malteasers

I may also put in an appearance tonight.

Re: Beer and Malteasers

Paul's out, so I'll definitely be behind him. :smile:
