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.

...It is now! (Over Attempt 2 tonight)

After last week's rain and mudfest, only reaching Conington, it is attempt 2 to reach over tonight.

The Community Centre is open until 10 pm (nominally :smiley: ) so we should get a drink or so in with the route I have planned.

Simon and I are riding in from Over starting 18:30 - let me know if you want to ride in with us!

Hope to be out.If we can take a different route and avoid the clay this time it would be appreciated.

Re: ...It is now! (Over Attempt 2 tonight)

Hope to join tonight, but not all the way from Over. The mud was all fine by Saturday BTW

Right - I'm riding. I've got to eat and get ready now, so it'll be tight. Watch out for the what's app chat !
