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.

19th March - Ride Tonight?

Hi All,

I hope that you're all enjoying social distancing.

Not sure if the Blue Ball will be open, but I'd love to go for a ride this evening in order to maintain my sanity.

I will take a can of GK IPA with me in case the pub is closed.

Anyone else up for a ride?

Yes me.

Re: 19th March - Ride Tonight?

I was thinking of joining you in the pub. I did a 14 miler the other day and that was about as much as my hip was good for, so I'll pass on the ride.

I have had a bit of a cough and felt a bit shivery earlier (not now I cranked the heating up). Would you like me to stay at home?:cold_sweat: :face_with_thermometer: :mask:

I think that would be a good idea, Tony :mask: :wink:
