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: Hare 'n' Hounds Tonight

There's a very simple solution to that one, Pat...

Re: Hare 'n' Hounds Tonight

Yep, the old Silver Sanitary Towel Surfer will be making an appearance

Re: Hare 'n' Hounds Tonight

Hi All

Have yet to establish why I was so slow last night, but thanks very much for waiting for me. The 5lbs I put on over the last 2 months cant have anything to do with it surely? Think I'll try much higher tyre pressure next time

Thought it was a bit nippy last night, proved by the garmin showing a minimum of -3.0 C.

Hi Pete.

No sweat...literally

You have been off colour for few weeks / not been out so I am not surprised the fitness has dropped !

See you soon
