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.

The Hoops Barton

Anyone riding to Barton tonight?

Re: The Hoops Barton

Maybe not: I am leaning towards skipping it this week, given that I am going to be out consuming my own body weight in pizza and beer on Friday night with my colleagues.

Re: The Hoops Barton

Hi Jon, I'm planning to be out. I noticed you didn't use pub name, leaving the white horse as a possibity?

Re: The Hoops Barton

I plan to be out, hoping to find a banana plantation this week.

The Hoops would be an option but the White Horse would be too. I've got to get home early and would like to be served before bedtime.

Re: The Hoops Barton

I am planning to join you today for the first time ;)

Wouldn't that have been a really good reason TO go out?
