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 Blue Ball, Grantchester 10 - 11

Anyone out tonight? I am hoping I will be there tonight, may have to bring a box of tissues though due to this stupid cold :(

Re: The Blue Ball, Grantchester 10 - 11

Should be out. Mud tyres in garage. That's where they'll stay tonight.

Re: The Blue Ball, Grantchester 10 - 11

All been well and I manage to pop a muddy tyre on the back I'll be out.
Havn't been in the rehashed BB yet.

Re: The Blue Ball, Grantchester 10 - 11

I am not out tonight. HOWEVER. Mud tyre season is here. Medusa4life. safe.

Re: The Blue Ball, Grantchester 10 - 11

i should be out, but i'm still running my intermediate tyres as i haven't had time to change the wheels for the winter set yet, as it is easier said than done as i need to replace the shagged (falling out of the hub) bearings too.
the joy of tubeless!
