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.

Early call for Thetford tomorrow

Morning Peeps,
Anyone up for Thetford tomorrow evening? The forecast looks good !!

I have space for a second bike on my rack if anyone doesn't have transport?

Cheers

Re: Early call for Thetford tomorrow

Yep I am coming, see you all there.

Re: Early call for Thetford tomorrow

I am planning to travel to the aforementioned BCP and, upon arriving at said location, change transport mode from my motorised example to the full suspension two wheeled type and partake in the said activity.

Hi Paul & Norman,
Do either of you have a spare helmet light that I could borrow this evening?

I seem to have misplaced mine & won't have enough time tonight to have a proper look for it.

Cheers
