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.

Weds pm Cannock Chase ride

Morning all!
For any of you lot that are self employed or are "freelancing".

I am planning on riding in Cannock Chase http://www.chasetrails.co.uk/xc/ on Weds around 4pm. I have a couple of back to back meetings in Birmingham & thought I would make the most of being near Cannock.

If anyone has ridden up there before it is basically like Thetford but much more fun as bigger rolling hills, rock gardens & a bit of Northshore .

I know it is a longshot but would be great to have a riding buddy.

I need to head off upto Manchester around 6-7pm for meetings the following day

Cheers
GN
