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.

Sofa or Shepherds?

Hi All,

Weather looks truly damp this evening, but I may have to partake, else my limbs will seize-up.

Anyone else fancy a sloshy ride in the damp, followed by a (potentially early) pint in the Ancient Shepherds?

Laters?

PT

Re: Sofa or Shepherds?

Yes Pasty, I am planning to be out. Last time we tried the Ancient Shepherds they shut early so an early pint would definitely be justified in this instance.

Re: Sofa or Shepherds?

Sofa. No, Shepherds. No, Sofa. No, no, no. Definitely Shepherds. If they're open....

Re: Sofa or Shepherds?

Yep I am up for it

Re: Sofa or Shepherds?

I am not a good swimmer, but I will try to keep up.

Re: Sofa or Shepherds?

Going for the sofa option tonight.
On call next week so probably won't be out next week either.
Enjoy your early bath
