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.

Re: A Wild Night Out to the Queen's Head

My excuse this week is my Northwave MTB shoes have yet to arrive, so I've taken the opportunity to fit new bearings in the Zesty suspension. Its currently in bits, and may be so a bit longer, as I plan to prevent recurrence of the design fault which causes premature bearing failure. But if the rain stops, I'll road it out to Newton
