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.

Hound those Hares !

No, i'm not advocating a return to the brutality of blood sports*, i'm just saying tha t i'll be out tonight.

Norman

* of course, if someone crashes and sustains a blood injury then this might well be true !

Re: Hound those Hares !

Pretty sure there not open on Tuesdays anymore, The Chequers in Orwell is very good! B

Re: Hound those Hares !

May well be out, although it depends on work.

The Hare and Hounds closes at 9 on Tuesdays so the plan was to go to the White Horse at Barton as we didn't manage to get there last week. Obviously we would not take a route that went past Norman's front door this week.

> route past my front door.

Work has intervened so not out this evening.

Plenty of badgers on the m11 Eco, no need to go up North...
