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.

BIG Adventure - The Chill Down

(And it IS chilly - I'm sat under the aircon in my office.)

Thanks to TONY for organising yet another marvellous event! Those poor tigers, police and paramedics would have made themselves scarce had they known what was coming.

And well-attended too - it was great fun!

@BB Dom - conditions were OK. Not terribly muddy on the trails, although it drizzled on the way back from the pub. Will you be finishing anytime soon?

Doitto - it was a great night, Tony. Thanks. And I learned some facts and some new routes. And the wine was delicious!

I'm looking forward to "no really, that bench" next time
