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.

Fantastic photo that it is (Leith Hill??), it's probably time that we had a new one.

Anyone care to share? Either send to me on Facebook or by email - tandklee at ntlworld dot com.

I'll put a few out there for your approval.

Re: Forum Photo

I've only just noticed that Andy Wiggett has his eyes shut in the photo!!

He also appears to be grimacing and gritting his teeth, as if being probed from behind.

I had my teeth gritted once. A bit of a pest but it worked - no snow or ice on them since.
