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.

Blue Ball Grantchester

Anyone out tonight, going to be windy and muddy. This could be the last winter ride until November. Can we change the pub to the Green Man

Re: Blue Ball Grantchester

I am happy to cope with "muddy wind". BBC say sun this afternoon so with the wind as well we may get dry trails

Yep I am happy to change pub

Re: Blue Ball Grantchester

Yes & yes

Re: Blue Ball Grantchester
