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.

Six Bells

Re: Six Bells

Hi Jon,
Sorry, still coughing like camel, hope to venture out next week.

Re: Six Bells

Yep, Im up for it (but not the ride home)

Re: Six Bells

i will be out.
looks as if it could be fun out there tonight.

Re: Six Bells

hope to be out - it's lovely in Fulbourn just now. Got to get up early tomorrow though...

Re: Six Bells

Planning to be out, barring any last minute hitches.

Weather looks increasingly windy, albeit dry. Not sure about the trail conditions - that frost and rain will have made it more than a bit sketchy - need to think about route choice.

Cheers

Re: Six Bells

think about the route choice?!!!
why?
normaly we all turn up, discuss it for a bit, go for the safe option and set of at 19:45
why should things be different today

Something has come up and I won't be able to make it this evening - have a good ride.

Re: Six Bells

I think us wusses who don't want to get muddy should consider this the next time we iterate towards the ideal number of bikes:
