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.

The green man or the jolly green giant..... you decide

Well, the bones are healing, i’ve Started to run and swim again...... and it isn’t pretty.
The ligament’s still are a problem but I have to get back in the saddle and loose the stone of weight that appeared from nowhere since November.

So, as it is a local ride... sort of, i’m Intending to put in an appearance.
I suspect I will be slow, out of practice and reserve the right to bail if the pain gets too much.

Anyone else coming out?
