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.

Ride and Virtual Pub TOONITE! The Skinny Arms

Hi All,

I intend to ride tonight as Boris has allowed us all out once per day. I aim to be at the skinny arms for 9:30 pm.

It would have been the Barton Hoops tonight - maybe one of us could squawk like that loud woman who frequents there, just for some extra authenticity. Any takers?

Re: Ride and Virtual Pub TOONITE! The Skinny Arms

I'm out riding tonight and will meet you all at the Skinny Arms at 9:30 pm.

I will be riding the Whyte tonight with the summer tyres. Other bikes need some TLC so are being eschewed for now...

(not a made-up word)

Question - will you all be giving the clap to key workers at 8pm? Hoping to...

What’s VD got to do with it?

Re: Ride and Virtual Pub TOONITE! The Skinny Arms

Last weeks pub was fun....Now that I have got as far as I can on my shower room (without a floor layer) I have run out of excuses and will ride tomorrow!
see you at 9.30...with Tony's blessing
