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.

The Plough and Fleece, Horningsea 03-11-16

Unfortunately I can not make this one tonight as I am streaming with a cold A bit gutting as this is probably the closest one to me and the weather looks pretty decent as well. See you all next week and ride safe

Re: The Plough and Fleece, Horningsea 03-11-16

Not tonight. Working out near Therfield so going to take a ride out there.

Re: The Plough and Fleece, Horningsea 03-11-16

At this stage of the day I am planning to be out. But who knows what mayhem may intervene? (Will be testing my new cassette so hopefully no chain jumping the sprockets).

Re: The Plough and Fleece, Horningsea 03-11-16

Should be out but not for a late one. Got a very early start so it will only be a one pint stop. Are you listening Fenton, Stafford???

Re: The Plough and Fleece, Horningsea 03-11-16

Will be riding. Tess may join us at the pub. Home match!

Re: The Plough and Fleece, Horningsea 03-11-16
