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.

Tonight’s train out bike back

Dear all

Unfortunately I can’t make tonight’s ride. I do have have a route which I can share if anyone is interested? Alternatively happy to reschedule the train out ride back to the 27th if people fancy.

Cheers
Paul

27th

Re: Tonight’s train out bike back

Aye, 27th. I'm not out either tonight as I have to get up at stupid o'clock to get my son to an open day at Bristol Uni.

In fact, I may even go to bed right now.

Night night!

27th is perfect for me. Thought I was going to miss this one.

Is anyone out locally tonight?

not out tonight as i'm trying to have one day this week without getting wet to the skin.

Re: Tonight’s train out bike back

I was hoping that no one would even ask. This is a rare occasion where I am actually free on a Thursday to go out. Should we?

Re: Tonight’s train out bike back

How about a quick, damp spin to the east. Quy? Horningsea? I have to be up and away early so fancy a home match.

Re: Tonight’s train out bike back

Yes, good call.

Re: Tonight’s train out bike back

You scallywags! If I knew you were headed to the Fenz I would have popped by.

Re: Tonight’s train out bike back

Elsenham is I understand the destination station for Thurs 27th. I'm sure someone will be along with train times, or a fresh post, containing said times.:slightly_smiling_face:
