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.

OMM Festival 2020

Hi All,

OMM have just announced that their Festival, including the OMM Bike MTB event, will be held at Cannock Chase again. The dates are the 1st to 3rd May and you can sign up any time.

Me, Paul L, Paul S, Richard S, Simon H and Barry rode it last year and had a brilliant weekend. Recommended.

Re: OMM Festival 2020

Planning to make a reappearance this time, just trying to schedule a family do for the following weekend when my stray brother is in the UK from Oz for a rare visit. OMM may have to take precedence.

Re: OMM Festival 2020

In case anyone else is struggling OMM in this context means “Original Mountain Marathon” .....only 26 miles then?

Re: OMM Festival 2020

26 miles? Maybe for the first half of the day, Pete :smile:

Re: OMM Festival 2020

Now that I know it doesn't clash with the BH weekend, I might well be tempted..
