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.

Peaks trip 12/13th November

Peaks trip !
Thinking about a weekend away to The Peaks on the weekend of the 12/13th of November if anyone is interested ?

Re: Peaks trip 12/13th November

SOunds good - was going to ask if you fancied wales again - but also happy to go somewhere new. Are tubeless tyres allowed?

Re: Peaks trip 12/13th November

I'll need permission on this occasion due to the number of weekends away I've already had.

Incidentally, why has your avatar changed from an attractive young lady to a sheep? Is there something you want to tell us?
