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.

The White Horse, Foxton

Looks like I'm starting discussion over tonight's ride...
Who is likely to make it out then?

I've not been sent to Finland with work.
The weather looks pretty decent too.

Re: The White Horse, Foxton

Yes, me!

Re: The White Horse, Foxton

Neither have I been sent to Finland, so plan to ride too.

Re: The White Horse, Foxton

I wanted to go to Finland but they would not let me back in (yep I am out too)

Re: The White Horse, Foxton

I seem to have made it back from Val Thorens in one piece so should be riding as well

Re: The White Horse, Foxton

Still chesty so I'm oot-thats oot, not oot-oot

Re: The White Horse, Foxton

Yeah, you've got to be careful with that Val--you're lucky to escape!

Re: The White Horse, Foxton

Thorens did make some cracking record decks.... suppose Val must have been his wife or daughter?
Not out tonight going work and ride in the sun tomo
