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.

it may have inspired this months "SoapBox" section in MBR

Re: If The Cap Fits.....DOM.....Bowsey.

Well, to use the terminology in the article, I can absolutely assure you that any of my non-riding activities which use up any time are definitely in the 'Planned Faffing' category, or occasionally 'Technical Faffing'.

Anyone who says anything otherwise is a cad and a bounder, and I will demand satisfaction. NOT you, Eco - I know what you'll think that means...
