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 Green Man Grantchester

Anyone fancy a few beers tonight????

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

I'm hoping to come out tonight.

I may be late, however, as my builder needs access to a wall which currently has some full cupboards on it.

Definitely see you at the pub, though, whatever.

PT

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

I'll be out - don't know about 'a few beers' though - I've got to be on the road at 7.00 a.m.

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

Planning to be out tonight. Apologies in advance for slowing you down.

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

Not feeling the love for a possible mudfest-it's only just stopped raining here in Melbourn--what is it like nearer town?

Re: The Green Man Grantchester

crisp and sunny in town Rick

in the interests of avoiding mud 'Don't go west young man' might be sound advice.
