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.

Blue Lion Hardwick

It'll be a tad humid but compared to recent precipitation, only a smattering at 10% probability. Tyre wise, I think we are getting near to putting those high drag covers on.

Any takers?

Plan to be riding unless it is precipitating heavily

Re: Blue Lion Hardwick

I plan to come out if not raining too badly at departure time.
