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.

Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

I fancy both - anyone else planning to ride to Wilbraham tonight?

Re: Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

Yes. (I'll delete my thread on almost exactly the same lines.)

Re: Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

I think I shall join you! I have a mountain bike, lights, legs, and some limited ability to drink beer, so I think I qualify on all the major criteria.

Hopefully see you there tonight!

Joe (never ridden with you before)

"Limited ability to drink beer"

oh dear. A training programme can be provided.

How hard can it be?

Re: Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

I'd like to be able to counter Tony's argument by saying that less beer = more speed, but several stalwarts of the group have proven that the relationship is not a linear one.

But however much beer you drink, Joe, you'll be very welcome.

Re: Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

Not out tonight, insufficient brownie points. Have a great ride.

Re: Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

I plan to help with Joe's training tonight.

see you later TomR

Re: Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

I'll come and join you all too! :upside_down_face:

Re: Sausage Rolls and Carpenter's Cask

wish i could have joined you but walking is still a problem and cycling is not a good idea.
running, well the less said about that the better at the mo.
