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.

Blue Lion Tooonite

I'm out - anyone else?

PT

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

Yes, me. Looking forward to a more gentle poodle than the Tuesday night thrash

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

I will be out for a bimble

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

Pretty, 99% sure I'm out, daft not to!

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

ooer, there goes my "gentle" poodle

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

Having only cycled 18 miles in two months and only a third of my usual mileage by now... Believe me I'm the one who's worried
In fact sitting stationary on the a14 2 miles east of quy, I'm worried I'll get out at all
I'm 47 don't you know etc etc

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

Yep I will be there (don't worry Pete, I have been out 4 times this week so I will be poodling tonight)

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

Well Duncan, hope you get off the A142 in time - it will make conversation easier than the last two Tuesday nights when you have talked to me from your van in Comberton!

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

I'm out tonight

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

I'll be out but will probably have to dash off after a swift pint!

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

I'm out

Re: Blue Lion Tooonite

Yep, made it home in time so I'm out too.
