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.

Not out tonight

I'm not out tonight. Is anyone else doing anything more interesting?

Re: Not out tonight

I should be out on the bike this evening. No idea where we are going however...

Re: Not out tonight

Ooh, a thread I can add to! Am doing a private 10m team time trial on the Barton / Arrington roundabout / Barton course. It’s a practice for Saturday morning. I’m looking forward to when it’s over....

Re: Not out tonight

Planning to ride tonight, had better endeavour to arrive at Arrington before Pete T has drunk it dry.

Re: Not out tonight
