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.

06-10 Hardwick

Anyone else out on this Thursday 6th Oct?

Now I am not on call I am hoping me and the lad will be able to make it out, we have not done a Thursday before, I do hope its not as hard as the Tuesday's runs we did I need to get seriously fitter and stronger to keep up with them

Re: 06-10 Hardwick

Ah! the Tuesday / Thursday who is faster question arises again.

well i think the concensus of oppinion in the group is we can't agree.
it depends on who is out, wind direction, rain, choice of pub and hence quality of beer on offer.

as for Thursday, well i'm not on call this week either so i'm intending to ride, so that will be at lease 2 of us.

general rule of thumb seems to be twice as many people ride as post so see you and 2 mystery riders on thursday.

numbers subject to change without notice as no one realy seems to post now until lunchtime the day of the ride!!! but strangely there were 6 views on this before i even posted......they may be the mystery riders!!!
