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.

CAMMTB Awards 2018 - nominations open

Hi All,

If you're attending the Christmas dinner in 3 weeks time, I will need your nominations for the CAMMTB Awards.

I plan to do it this way - everyone there will get an award so please nominate anyone for anything you can remotely justify. If I don't get nominations for an attendee, I'll just make something up (in consultation with a panel of experts).

BUT I would like nominations for specific, perennial categories, they being:-

Best/Worst Crash
Pimped Ride
Unlucky Alf Award
Midnight Rambler (you know what I mean)
South African
Lamest Excuse for Not Riding
Alan Wicker Award for International Absence
Rider of the Year
Bitter Monster
Does He/She Never Stop Talking? Award
Wardrobe Malfunction Award

Nominations, which can be as ironic as you like, should be sent to me: tandklee @ ntlworld .com

Attendees as of last night are: Me, Paul L, Duncan, Tony, Brad K, Barry, Tom R, Pete T, Pat, Pete F, Geordynige, Norman, Big Bad Dom, Eco Duncan, Adriano and Tess.

I will repost as more are added.

Many thanks!!

PT
