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.

Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong!

six bells..... get it?

i'll get my coat.

i'm planning to be out later but may pull out due to the lingering effects of a Migraine last night, and looking out the window the sky has just fallen down!

that must be a new one for the excuses list?

Re: Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong!

Should be riding this evening

Re: Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong!

Actually not out this evening. I'm saving myself for Cannock Chase and the inevitable deluge tomorrow.

PT

Definitely thinking about it, and the recent rain should have dampened down the dust a little?

Re: Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong!

Wow, not been out for a while and an epic to boot. 43 miles on the clock . Good route too
