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.

Joining you for a ride

Hi,

I am thinking about joining you guys for a ride either tonight or Thursday. Would one day be better than the other for a first ride out?

Hi Emily

Either night would be fine. Although the Tuesday evening rides are possibly slightly faster we always ride at the speed of the slowest rider and no one gets left behind.

This Thursday is an orienteering style event (see post from Tony below) which should be fun, is ridden in pairs and is likely to be more relaxed than a regular ride.

Hopefully see you on the trails soon.

I am planning to ride tonight, so I can promise tonight won't be that fast

Re: Joining you for a ride

Yep I am riding tonight as well and have had a heavy weekend / Monday so a hungover trail behind night for me
