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.

Thetford tonight?

Ladies and Gents
Is anyone planning to ride at Thetford tonight?
I'm up for it, but wonder what the state of the trails will be after Sunday.

Any ideas?

Anyone else planning on making the trip?

Hi Mark

If i was wasn't stuck on Copacabana beach i would have come along!

Re: Thetford tonight?

Poor you!
I take it you didn't have to scrape the frost off your sunglasses this morning then...

We may not be riding in Brazil, but it will be a forest, and it will probably be raining #rainforest


Re: Thetford tonight?

Hi Mark

I was planning on coming along but having got absolutely soaked on Sunday I'm not sure I fancy more of the same again tonight so I might give it a miss.

The course on Sunday was very good on lap one and had a dry line by the end of the 4 hour race but in between was a bit slippy in places. It will be fine if it stays dry....

Re: Thetford tonight?

Yep, I am up for it, I don't know about all those wimps that are afraid of a little water but us big boys don't care

Re: Thetford tonight?

After embarrassing myself with my lack of fitness last time I was out with you guys, I have been out on my bike quite a lot, so I shall try again tonight and hopefully keep up. See you there!

Re: Thetford tonight?

I wrote a message to say I'm not coming out as it's going to rain a lot. But I used a rude word so apparently it was spam.

Anyway, I'm not coming out. It's going to rain, and it will be horrid, and I am not big and strong like Paul S.

Re: Thetford tonight?

No No, don't say that, You'll always be a fine, strong, strapping fella my lad to me

Re: Thetford tonight?

Dry trails, no rain and sheltered from the wind... A good evening's riding was had by all.

If only there was a pub in the forest...

Re: Thetford tonight?

Yep, as Mark said...... unbelievable, I was as clean when we returned as when we set off, It was like riding on a summers evening !! Thanks Mark for working the route
