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.

Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

The rain may well have stopped, if it even starts, by the time we go out tonight. Anyone up for it?

I'll take the GoPro tonight - been meaning to try it on a summer ride for a while - so wear your best bib and tucker.

PT

Re: Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

Yep, count me in

Re: Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

Not out again. Did a bike commute yesterday and regretted it eventually. Think it's going to be a while before I'm out and about properly

Re: Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

I should be out, assuming I get my bike sorted out this time...

Re: Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

I'm planning to ride tonight

Re: Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

Not tonight I'm afraid.
I'm on call for work this week.
See you next week

Re: Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

Coming along- looks like its going to be sweaty. May have to head off shortly after a swift one!

Re: Six Bells TOOOOONITE!

Ok, after consultation with colleagues big beetles were probably the comically named cockchafer beetles (or May bugs- 10 points to PT) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cockchafer
