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.

Just saw this:

No bones broken and no hospital visit, so hopefully it's not too bad.

F*#king idiot driver!

Re: Claire, hope you're ok

I checked streetview, but couldn't see any white cars ;) Get well soon Claire!

Re: Claire, hope you're ok

Flippin' 'eck.... looks painful.
Hope you get well & we see you out riding again soon.

Re: Claire, hope you're ok

Cheers I am OK it appears I bounced quite well lucky nothing broken. Photo was taken at the peak of me feeling sorry for myself. Face back to normalish shape now! Obviously I am on the warpath for that white car though, no joy as yet.

Re: Claire, hope you're ok

Wow!

Absolutely shocking behaviour!

Get well soon Claire.
