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.

Anyone fancy a ride to Grantchester tonight?

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

This week I are mostly being in the Netherlands, but am back briefly so hope to be out tonight.

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

Yep, count me in

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

Tony, are you sure you're not an international diamond mule?

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

Should be out on me "Wheels of Steel" ish
I too would like to take this opportunity to thank Tonis' Julie for making Rachel spend less time at home and for all the trips coming up.
P.S.
Apparently "Pure Leaf Tone" supplies the cafes of Amsterdam with Syn*ent* Prime EX14 (other brands are available) gear!!

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
She's got wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
Talking 'bout my wheels of steel

I don't take no jibe from the motorway pigs
When I'm crusin' down the singletrack I don't get no lifts
If you see me coming get out of my way
You know a full bounce didn't, I blew it away
etc etc

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

Yes Tom, I shove 'em up my Jacksy. Unfortunately I have one lodged at the moment so will be out on the full sus, not the hardtail.
