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.

Thetford Tuesday 18th Oct

Hi

We have not been to Thetford before with this group. Does it run the same format as the normal weekly rides where the group will wait at each intersection for the slower riders?

Also, what sort of time of night do you tend to get away from there? Just thinking of the lad and how late it will be by the time we get home.

Many thanks
Steve

Hi Steve

We tend to ride from 8 until 10ish and wait for slower riders at intersections.

Hopefully see you at Thetford tomorrow evening.

Cheers,
Paul

Well that ended up a very very wet and muddy one, and suddenly the heavens opened and once they had finished opening, they somehow opened even more, lol
