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.

Hounded in Harlton

I am, are you ?

Re: Hounded in Harlton

Yep, planning to be out tonight.

Re: Hounded in Harlton

i'm in, i mean out, i mean riding tonight.

Re: Hounded in Harlton

Yep, I'm planning to venture out on the 29'er, as long as you promise not to laugh at my (too short) mudguard.

Re: Hounded in Harlton

Yep count me in and also Oscar will be making an appearance. Sorry Tom I can not promise not to laugh at you for any reason

Re: Hounded in Harlton

Not tonight I'm afraid, nursing a niggly back this week so need to rest it a bit. looks good out too

Re: Hounded in Harlton

I'm hoping to be out, if I'm still in time, to give my Schitty Schwinn a test ride before winter starts in earnest. (Mudguards on the 29er still need some attention.)

This one still has butyl tubes, so tonight I could potentially be the puncture twat.

Re: Hounded in Harlton


Unfortunately not going to make 7:30pm start but will ride to the pub later.

Re: Hounded in Harlton

Hi, I did post earlier that I wasn't going to make it, but apparently it didn't register. Sorry if I delayed you setting off.

Re: Hounded in Harlton

Great ride last night PT & I didn't think your mudguard was that short! It was definitely longer than mine :)

Also liked the astronomy lesson on the way home :)
