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.

White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16

Dry and positively balmy tonight (10deg), anyone else coming out ?

Re: White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16

Might road it there tonight to save the embarrassment of always being last. Actually I have something I need to test on the road bike.

Re: White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16

Yup, I intend to be there.

Re: White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16

Bring the MTB and have some fun out with everyone Pete :)

Re: White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16

I'm hoping for crisp, frosty and firm surfaces...

I'll be out. If it's 10'C you won't be needing the hipflask.

Re: White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16

Babysitting duties tonight so not going to make it this week.

Re: White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16

My wife will be "parenting" tonight, so I should be out.

Re: White Swan, Quy tonight 8.12.16


I'll be out tonight.
