  • 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.

P.S. It's white hill, which during the 15-17c was a very important chapel which received pilgrims from as far as France (Lourdes) to pray at the chapel of our lady (Mary) of white hill on their way to Walsingham (not as in Matilda) were on the Haslingfield side & Baaarrrringun hill on the Better side where, people in the early 1980's use to go on pilgrimage to the cement works and complain about the unidentified white shit coming out of the chimney and landing everywhere). It's obvious Baaarrrrringun is a better place... have you been in the Little Rose?....exactly!

Re: Got your climbing legs for Tuesday?

It's one of those tumble weed days then....
Long as I get finished at work in time I'll be out for an undulating non-competetive bimble
