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.

Away by car tomorrow?

I should be available. Kids back from swimming about then for me to have the motor. Anyone else ? Where to ? (Suggestion: Chicksands !)

Re: Away by car tomorrow?

Hi Norm,
I am up for an away day by car. Last time I did one we went to Royston Heath, the pub called The Fox & Duck in Therfield. There is some good riding around the heath and South into Herts.

Cheers
Geordynige

I've seen Nige's route and it looks like a cracker !
