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.

Thetford

Anyone riding thetford tonight? I am thinking about giving it a try even though my back is still knackered.

Re: Thetford

Should be there :-)

Fashion police be advised, I will probably be trying out my new full-face helmet ahead of my Alps trip

Re: Thetford

Re: Thetford

No, but may be tempted to ride direct to a local pub if there's a local ride. Got to break myself back in gently you know.

Re: Thetford

I'm hoping to be out, but I won't be able to find my way. So we'll need a guide, or I'll consider riding locally.

Re: Thetford

Would love to but unfortunately I will be stuck here eating magret de canard and drinking red wine while contemplating riding up and down some hills tomorrow...

See you all in a couple of weeks

Re: Thetford

My blank comment said but it treated it as HTML

I could be persuaded for a local ride, if we did that Ade might come out too as we have no children tonight.

Re: Thetford

Oh fffs my blank comment said *disowns Andy* in less than and greater than signs.

Doesn't matter now, wasn't bloody funny in the first place.

you've got something right

Re: Thetford

Yup, I'd be up for a local ride, unless MarkT or somebody says he's up for guiding at BCP. If nobody else posts before 17:00, I suggest we just default to local.

Re: Thetford

OK, I'll be riding local, unless it gets much wetter than it is now. Then I'll just chicken out and do something else.

Who mentioned duck? :-p

Re: Thetford

I am up for local as Ade has said he might meet us in the pub. Which would be good as we have a night with no children.

Re: Thetford

been in a never ending meeting, I'll still be going to thetford

(on my own? :()

barring major mishap.

I can remember quite a bit of it, but might end up just doing the marked trails

Re: Thetford

I'm afraid work is looking like delaying me today. Sorry!

Re: Thetford

You are just saying that cos it's raining!

Re: Thetford

Not raining anymore. Work still there.

Re: Thetford

OK I have now put myself off thetford as Ade doesn't want to come so am going on a road ride on my lonesome seeing as there seem to be no local takers either.

Re: Thetford

I'm up for Thetford.
