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.

Shout out for the RLF!

Just to say a big thanks to the RLF for assembling a well balanced and enlightening runs list. Pleased to see some fenland pubs in there, I know the technical terrain over that way puts a few off but they are worth padding up for. Alas, due to chinese transactions I will again miss the Over ride , and seeing pastry's chute chute in action. I will write a poem before hand for recital on my behalf.

Cheers!

Dear People's Poet,

Do we really have to wait that long to indulge ourselves in your eloquent wordsmithing? Please can you give us a sample poem to keep us going?
