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.

Virtual pub sessions

Hello all, this has all happened at a convenient time as I am not really up for longish rides for the time being.

Last Thursday I opened the Skinny Arms, virtual pub and invited a select group to join me for a beer. They couldn't make it but a few of the Cammtb regulars and irregulars did. It worked pretty well and was a good way to maintain a slight sense of normality.

If you fancy joining in the future, send me your email address and I will forward you an invitation.

The sessions are set up to run on Thursdays for the next 24 weeks (!) from 9.30 and you should be able to join even if I am off-line (I hope).

There is a dress code, you're not coming in with those shoes Adriano.

Hoping the ale supplies hold out.

Tony, please can you add me to your otherwise selective group. Cheers Barry. skimo39@gmail.com
