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.

Re: Dullingham

I'll buy you a pint to fortify the legs

Re: Dullingham

If Tony's buying I might be out.

Re: Dullingham

Tempting !

Re: Dullingham

I could also give you the family bible to carry

Re: Dullingham

Not Tempting !

Re: Dullingham

right - as well as the obvious distance problem, I'm also shattered after biking the last two nights, while over at my dad's house.

So, time to goto bed early with a cocoa, rather than drink ale nearly 20 miles from home !

Enjoy - catch you next week !
