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.

New comer for Thursday outing

Hi everyone,

I am a new comer and will be joining you tomorrow Thursday for a ride.

Have only rediscovered recently the joy of riding with the lock down situation.
Not a lot of experience MTB around but up for a challenge.

Sylvio (new joiner too) got me interested.

See you,
Stuart

Hi Stuart,

See you tonight at 19:30

Cheers

Barry

Re: New comer for Thursday outing

Great time and certainly was a challenge for me tonight.
On the road back I only came across one car, lovely feeling having the whole road for myself, i can't remember that feeling since cycling across Snowdonia a couple decades ago.

Very friendly bunch of guys.
Ride on,
Stuart
