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.

Fancy a Tickell?

I'm trying to shake off my horrendous cough which followed me around Thetford last week and struck me down with a fever for 4 days.

Anyone, therefore, out for a moderate bimble with some very nice beer at the end?

PT

Re: Fancy a Tickell?

Re: Fancy a Tickell?

Don't mind if i do.

OR the big and slower Trek with the serious clicking bottom bracket
