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.

Forum Subs Due in 4 Weeks

Hi All,

Bravenet have emailed to remind me that the annual forum subs are due on 12th September. The charge is US$39.95, or about £26.

Assuming that we want to remain with them (or are too apathetic to arrange anything else in time), I'll be collecting donations over the next month. In the best of democratic traditions, the biggest donor gets a seat in the House of Lords, as long as they don't mind it being in the toilet.

A quid each should suffice but there won't be any naming and shaming if you refuse or happen to be short of a bob or two when I pass the hat round. Don't say I didn't warn you.

All the best

PT

Will you bring a hat along for the exercise? Your bike helmet is full of holes, if you haven't noticed...

How about a Buff tied at one end then?
