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.

Thursday Night - Stapleford, 3HS

I reckon that, given the right amount of decongestants, I could make it out tonight.

Given my frail condition, I might have to roll along at the back, rather than duking it out with the fast-ones at the front as usual.

Anyone else out?

PT

Looks like a nice breezy night - I'll be out Tom

Re: Thursday Night - Stapleford, 3HS

provided i make it home in time, i will be out.
last night it took 1 Hour 45 mins and a new tyre for the car.
here is hoping it will be better tonight, i need to get the summer tyre off the bike before i come out too.

Re: Thursday Night - Stapleford, 3HS

Looks like a bit of a moist one this evening. I'm planning to be out as long as there are no more monsoon down pours between now and later...!

Re: Thursday Night - Stapleford, 3HS

Pat,
I am keeping my summer tyres on. I reckon that lot (of rain) has only just settled the dust (he lied).

At least you'll get a tail wind home from Melbourn......

Re: Thursday Night - Stapleford, 3HS

Could well be on this. I'll cover the rear...

Scratch that. Too knackered. Enjoy...

Re: Thursday Night - Stapleford, 3HS

I'm out tonight, catching the train in. Just sorting out the taxi home.
