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.

Stapleford?

Mud tyres on? No
Bike winter ready? No

Anyone out tonight?...

Re: Stapleford?

I’m similarly unprepared so yes hope to be.

Re: Stapleford?

I have new Bontrager Mud X, as recommended by Paul S. It's good on Peterborough mud. Now to try Cambridge clay. Better still fully tubeless again.
See you later

Re: Stapleford?

Not out tonight as thursdays now turbo night in Essex . Looks a nice night though. Better than Tuesday when I couldn’t force myself to go to the Hare & Hounds

Re: Stapleford?

Yes .I`m out.

Re: Stapleford?

I would have loved to be out tonight. Just to follow up on our little rugby chat of last week, but that would need to wait. Then again we have the next four years to talk about it. 😂 Enjoy your ride.

Re: Stapleford?

Re: Stapleford?
