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.

Thetford Tomorrow

Hey, I'm well aware that Thetford events sometimes turn into locals, but I'm keen on some single track tomorrow! How are others feeling about it? I'm not sure about my partner, I reckon she'll be keen as long as the pace isn't too high... We can drive ourselves or get a lift, no big problem either way.
Looks like it will rain a bit tomorrow afternoon, but it's forecast to stop before evening, so it might just dampen the dust down.

Cheers!

Re: Thetford Tomorrow

Alright, it's looking a bit wetter than I'd hoped.
Maybe next time!
