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 a ride

Good Evening All,

I would like to come and join the evening ride on either Tuesday or Thursday next week, my question surrounds the suitability of my front light. I have a lezyne Super Drive XL light (700 lumens apparently), would this be suitable light to join the group with?

Looking forward to coming along for a ride!

Cheers

Ian

Re: Joining a ride

Hi Ian.

Look forward to seeing you then

700 L is fine though you will not really need it this time of year apart from the ride back home after the pub.
