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.

Yup - confirmed - we are booked in thanks to Paul Lyons.

Well I have sprayed the moving bits of the bike with oil, evicted the spiders and dusted off my racing wellies.

Fast ride last night. We averaged over 20 km/h for the main part of the ride, excluding the maintenance stop. A record for my attendance at CAM MTB. Not that I need View Ranger track - my legs are telling me. Great ride, much enjoyed. 15 riders might be another PB. Thanks for the Richard and Bart for pace setting and route finding.

Great to get out riding last night, smaller groups work well and I must admit it's been a life ambition to see Bart slightly tired:-)
