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.

Moab

Hi

I'm thinking of going to Moab in October this year, probably 5 - 12 October (and then travel elsewhere in the US for another week or so). Is anybody interested in joining?

Yup, it'll be expensive. But you only live once...

Re: Moab

Sounds great but unfortunately 5-12th October is already booked for work purposes

Re: Moab

Hi Riaan,

I DID live once and visited Moab in life before kids. It's just such a great place, and there is beer there despite it being in Utah.

Watch out for Poison Spider Cycles - a good bike shop and I think they used to organise some tours.
