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.

Pyranees trip September 2016

Having just got back from another great week of mountain biking in the Pyranees just wanted to see if anyone is interested in coming along next year.

Check out the AQR website or talk to any of us who have been before; Pete Fenton, Richard Sloan, Claire. There is plenty of great cycling and plenty of beer drunk to make you feel at home although the climbs are a bit more challenging than you are used to!

We are planning to go on Saturday 17th September 2016 and return on Saturday 24th. You can take your own bike or hire bikes (the hire bikes are very good, Pete, Richard and myself always hire).

Let me know if you are interested
