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.

Rides for teenagers

Afternoon All

I have a 13 year old son who is a keen and reasonably confident MTB. He enjoys going to Phoenix bike park. He has tried Milton country park junior club but it wasn’t challenging enough for him. Does anyone know of any youth MTB clubs in the area? Or know how he can meet up with like minded teens at Phoenix or elsewhere?
Many thanks

Re: Rides for teenagers

Hi Sarah I realized this is from ages ago but answering in case you get a notification! I have a 13 and 15 year old who like to ride - more trails than bike parks though. I also have a friend who has a 13 year old who loves Phoenix who I can put you in touch with. If you get a notification from this you can Whatsapp me at 0737 *** 931 *** 4430
