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.

White Swan, Conington

I'm here this week and it looks like a nice evening for a short ride and a long drink. Anyone else oot and aboot?

Re: White Swan, Conington

Barring lightning strikes I hope to be there

Re: White Swan, Conington

Unfortunately not, migrating south today.

Re: White Swan, Conington

Its too hot for me, so have a good ride and a very large drink

Re: White Swan, Conington

I'm up for it. (Somewhat madly as it's going to be 34C when I leave home)

Re: White Swan, Conington

It would be rude not to.

Re: White Swan, Conington

Yes, I'll be out - I hope to cycle in so if Staffy wouldn't mind turning up with his portable shower....

PT

PS - Barry - bring more water this time.
