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.

Blue Ball Grantchester tonight 29/12

Anyone want to get out tonight / had enough of relatives ? It looks dry and frosty / foggy so a bit of excitement / mystery

Re: Blue Ball Grantchester tonight 29/12

Not going to make it tonight, but we are going to go to Thetford first thing in the morning, lucky us   On Tuesday we will let Mike ride at night, but a bit more time in the daylight might be best first :)

I'll prob be out, if not at Brookside I'll see you at the Blue Ball

Re: Blue Ball Grantchester tonight 29/12

I'm planning to be out, hopefully taking the soft option of a road ride with Pasty
