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.

Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

Anyone fancy a pootle to one of Cambridges finest?

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

I'm out tonight, parking car at pub.

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

Yarp - I will be out.

What's your tyre recommendation, Duncan? Is it drying out after last week's mini-deluge?

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

should be out provided unattended dogs have not eaten the house...

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

Summer tyres seem fine, although I think it probably isn't the time to bring out your triple compound Schwalbe Lederhosen queer Toms

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

i'm in for a bit of that

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

Will I get away with me Racing Ralphs (without lederhosen)? They were little use last week on the really muddy stuff (but they rocked on the hard-pack!).

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

if they worked last week in the mud i'd say it is a prety safe bet after all the sun we have had.

hey what do i know about this stuff, play safe, use the trailrakers.

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

Thanks Pat - I'll use the Whyte with the RR's then!

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

I'll be out with winter nobblies as haven't had time to change to summers..

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

We'll be parking at the pub too

Re: Hairy Hounds Ces Soir

I'll be out, c/w summer tyres and dust mask just in case. A perfect evening for it (weather and pub)
