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.

Re: Queen's Head

I'm out tonight.

Re: Queen's Head

S.O.P. if i get home in time i will be out.
can't miss my favourite pub and chocolate stop

Re: Queen's Head

I'll be out.

At the risk of opening the age-old debate, are the ground conditions demanding mud-tyres now?

Re: Queen's Head

last week was ok on the roman road,but there were a couple of squidgey bits up near rivey hill.
i have a "ralf" on the front and a "ron" on the back....so half and half.
your call if you need full mud or not yet.

Re: Queen's Head

Kind of a No at the moment. Basically have not got the mud tyres on yet.....

Re: Queen's Head

This week I are mostly being in Germany, so not out unless I go to Die Fuhrer's Kopf
