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.

Tickell Arms

Anyone up for a ride. Weather looks OK,

Virus forecast looks dodgy mind you.

Re: Tickell Arms

pas ce soir

hip forecast is not good, so staying in.

Re: Tickell Arms

Not sure I will make the start but planning on riding to the pub.

Please let me know if there is a change of venue.

Hopefully less windy than this morning!

Re: Tickell Arms

I'm planning to ride! It may be windy - blame the red wine I had last night.

PT

Re: Tickell Arms

Any ideas on a change of pub (as per Paul's mention) Whittlesord is a looooong waaaaay hooooooome when it's cold :grimacing:
