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.

anyone interested in some Peak District riding?

Hi all. Is anyone up for some proper hill riding Up North? I'm looking for some biking buddies for some riding in the Peaks, probably around Edale / Hope area. I was thinking of just going up for the day, although I don't mind camping if someone wanted to make a weekend of it.

Cheers,

Nick

Re: anyone interested in some Peak District riding?

Hi Nick,
I have not been out with the group for some time owing to a new job. But a day or a weekend camping and riding in the peaks district I would be very keen on. I have a pick up truck so I can fit plenty of bikes, people and camping gear if needed.
When were you thinking of going?
