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.

Thriplow Green Man 20/12

Anyone going on this ride this week? A long ride back for me, so undecided as yet, will see how many people are heading back my way after the pub?

Re: Thriplow Green Man 20/12

I should be out

is a long way for a winter ride.

That was my thoughts too, but if everyone thinks the same thing, then I guess there is no reason why we can't change the pub as long as we have a route master with us ;)

Re: Thriplow Green Man 20/12

I am planning to ride.
Suggestions for a shorter ride home if required. In distance order.
Queen's head at Newton
3 Horseshoes at Stapleford

see you at 7.30 TomR

I should be out. It's not a long way out. It is quite a long way home again...

Very True

Re: Thriplow Green Man 20/12

I'm going to be out tonight, provided I don't get a flat on the way to the start again.

I vote Queens head as alternate destination choice.
