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.

28th May - Socially Distanced Ride

Hi All,

Last week's Socially Distanced Ride was a doozer - Barry and I tackled the dizzy heights above the Eversdens, Wimpole, etc. Beers were had on hilltops. (taken in the backpacks)

Anyone out tonight? Two people from separate households can meet up for exercise in a public place.

PT

What about Tuesday? Up to 6 people should be OK now...
