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.

Green Man Tonight???

Forecast is for dry but very windy weather tonight - 50+ mph gusts.

What's the consensus?

Re: Green Man Tonight???

Haven't been out yet this year so willing to give it a go if it stays dry.

Re: Green Man Tonight???

Yep I am out. If my new front wheel bearings arrive for the MTB (both have seized !!!!!) then I will see you at the usual place if not I will road it to the pub on the other bike.

Re: Green Man Tonight???

Paul,

Wow! You've seized the poor bearings already? Mechanical sympathy score for the pimped bike? Zero!

Hope to see you tonight.

Cheers

TOM

Hmmm... Don't fancy that wind now that I'm home. Maybe next week.

A couple of personally relevant posts - I've not been out because of my continuing back issue, added to which my upper respiratory tract infection is taking a very long time to go away.

In conclusion, I could easily road it to the pub (Just set a small sail and coast there). The problem would be getting back. Pedaling into that wind in my condition - no thanks!

Hope to be out in a few weeks........
