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.

White Swan Quy - 20th Sept

I'm not riding tonight because my back is still recovering, however, I might meet you in the pub if anyone is planning to ride.

Weather conditions look dry until quite late but with very strong winds crashing in from about 8 p.m.

Tony is probably in another country - you can never rely upon him...

I'll come is someone else is riding from Brookside, but shan't travel to cycle alone

Re: White Swan Quy - 20th Sept

I'm here, I'll be out, I have a route in mind that possibly includes no contour lines at all - sounds right up Adriano's street.

Also my back is in good working order and I don't have a snuffle.

Good pub the White Swan.....in the week before the referendum they were serving ale from a pump with a "screw the EU" label.

So, depending on the weather I'll be out. I'll re post if not.
