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.

Plough & Fleece

I'm hoping to put in a sluggish re-appearance tonight. Anyone else out?

Re: Plough & Fleece

I've filled up the Camelbak and put the lights and GPS on the bike, so I'm hoping to be out.

Re: Plough & Fleece

Anybody else? No?

...was it something I said?

:-p

Re: Plough & Fleece

I aim to be out tonight-sluggish sounds good as not feeling particularly fit!

Re: Plough & Fleece

Hope to be out if I make it in time.

Re: Plough & Fleece

Still working so very unlikely at mo.

Re: Plough & Fleece

Stuck in the Pyrenees, so not tonight.
Have fun...

Re: Plough & Fleece

See you at the pub

Re: Plough & Fleece

Good night out, I'll have to remember about Belhaven Old Gold. And luckily we had no heart problems!

In about a week or two we'll be back to normal, with Bony Tony out in front, I suppose.
