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.

TONIGHT!!!! Blue Lion, Hardwick on the hill

Nearly the longest day of the year doesn't mean it has to be the longest ride of the year, I'm sure there should be some tasty dregs left over from the blue lions beer fest a couple of days ago..... could always sneak in there for 9pm
Roll up....whoose out?

Good ride

Top route last night Duncan, thanks for leading.

Nice to be able to take advantage of some good weather and late sunsets...

Re: Good ride

And so say all of us Mind you I was having to walk a tad slowly this morning on the way down stairs for the morning cuppa, not sure if it was the numb legs or the Hoggarden

Re: Good ride

Yes enjoyed that!! Had to appologise to Ferg this morning for drinking half a pint of his yummy strawberry flavour antihistamine.

Re: Good ride

Agreed, good ride, thanks!
