  • 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.

Wer zum der blaue lowe geht?

Anyone out tonight? Despite last night's rain, there's a breeze today and the forecast is for it to stay dry, so I don't think I need to get the mud tyres back on again - which is a relief, since having gone tubeless, I now understand why changing tyres is a pain! Anyone got a compressor going cheap?

Since my name is Dom, I shall probably "do a Dom" and park at the pub and ride in. Message for Katie - this is definitely not for wimps. You have to start earlier, you ride the same distance, you're by yourself so no drafting, and you're lonely and scared all by yourself so you have to sing, which kills the vocal chords and spoils your chances in the Cardiff Singer of the World contest...

See you later

I'll be wimping it tonight. Drafting in behind Dom.

Gave up in the first year which is probably why I thought it was Dutch.
