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.

Re: The usual suspects (type photo thing)

Duncan, I fear your gluten intolerance is developing into a beer intolerance. Maybe you just have a intolerant personality?

I'm more a chicken madras man nowadays. Donners are a bit 1980's.

Re: The usual suspects (type photo thing)

No, my beer tolerance is of a good standard, it's the lactose that gets me!
Anyway, 80's is trendy again so get out the jag and head for a Befeater orDonor van of excellence!
