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.

Beaver trouble

I don't know about the rest of you, but recently I have been having problems with beavers. Initially everything appeared to be more than satisfactory, but very quickly I suffered from flacidity and white goo seeped out and onto the floor. Repeatedly. Mrs S wasn't that impressed, though I swear it has never happened before.

Not to be discouraged, after a suitable period of recuperation, I tried again, this time enlisting an electrical aid for added vigour. Unfortunately this only made the liquid spurt everywhere, very quickly.

I have come to the conclusion that God never meant me to be get involved with beavers and it is time that I looked elsewhere.

I've heard good things about Nobby. What does anyone else think?

I'm open to suggestions.

Fucking beavers, eh?
