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.

Tonight: The Chequers, Orwell and Return of the Pale One

Hi All,

I'm hoping to make an appearance tonight. It's been six weeks since my last ride with CAMMTB due to holidays and injury - too long.

Anyone else out? The Chequers usually has good ale.

Me too.

Re: Tonight: The Chequers, Orwell and Return of the Pale One

I for one will not comment on Tony's washing habits and will merely announce I will be out tonight.

Sorry I dropped off last night without an Au Revoir. Another good ride.

Did anyone get a half-decent picture of the moon? Mine blown up enough to see anything is very grainy
