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: Thetford

Sorry Jon,

Am in the middle of a slight rebuild of the Zesty. Would have joined Pat but for this.

PAT: I am toying with a road ride out to wherever you think you will end up, as I have a new rain jacket to test...I'll text you at the start to see if you have a destination at that point.

Re: Thetford

I am up for it

Re: Thetford

This week I are entirely in the Netherlands, so funnily enough am not out again.

Re: Thetford

.......Update........Jon M and I are definitely going if anyone wants to join us.
