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: Queens Head, Newton this eve?

I see Tom is in a time machine. He posted at 4:03, but it is only 15:20.
On my way to Cambridge. I'll be out.
A route with sheltered bits when we are against the gale, please.

Tom is investing our hard earned cash (and Duncan's cash) in a shabby forum host. They don't seem to have got around to winding the clocks back at bravenet. It's 16.20 as I type...
