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.

Overnight ADVENTURE(careful)

Would anyone be interested in an "Overnight adventure" next year???
Thinking b and b/bunk house (yeah kin loads around here), camping???
30-45miles out and similar back.
Thinking.. Ardley or Ivinghoe or St Evenage or Brandon?!?

Re: Overnight ADVENTURE(careful)

Sounds good to me! shall we set aside some time in march? I would prefer wild camping - keep it authentic and test out my bikepacking setup before bigger adventures in the summer.

Re: Overnight ADVENTURE(careful)

It's a definite maybe. Go for a b&b in a pub. Adrian can camp in the garden.

Re: Overnight ADVENTURE(careful)

Yep, I would be up for that, B+B in pub sounds good Tony, any camping with Adriano is going to be "rough"

Re: Overnight ADVENTURE(careful)

Goodo. Will look to do something in March.

Re: Overnight ADVENTURE(careful)
