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.

Milton tonight

Anyone fancy a pootle?

I'm in London all day and might miss the start but intend to go to the pub at least.

If I miss the start and there is a change of venue could someone text me.

Re: Milton tonight

I want to come out tonight.

Do people want to go to Milton? Tony says it's creepy (the pub not the village)!

I will text you Paul if we change plans.

Re: Milton tonight

I should make it out tonight. I don't particularly mind stopping at creepy pubs in Milton, as long as the teenagers there don't bite. I've managed to fix the back wheel on my Niner - the one I broke in Harlton woods on just its second ride. I must try and break some spokes again on the third ride, that would be great.
