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.

Horningsea on Thursday

Subject to confirmation they are still open I was thinking of the Plough and Fleece on Thursday.

Happy to start at 7pm is people prefer to ensure a reasonable ride.

Sounds Good to Me Re: Horningsea on Thursday 7.00 pm

The forecast is good for Thursday Evening. I plan to ride unless pissing down

Or Thetford ?

To throw something different into the hat, I was thinking it's about time we went to Thetford

it looks like clear skies, to boot.


(if a little claggy, under-wheel, of course)

Thinking about a little road ride to the pub, with pothole radar switched on this time. If not, I'll see you at the start 19:00 hrs.
