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.

Thursday Night - Blue Ball

Hi All,

We have Parents' Evening on Thursday, finishing about 7pm so I'll be starting late and on-road in any case.

Can someone please text me the route and I'll let you know if there's a convenient meeting point. Else, I'll see you at the pub!

Cheers

Tom

I'll probably be out to catch a few rays.

"Weather to Cycle"?

I was supposed to be attending this lecture tonight at the Eng Labs, given by a meteorologist of the British Antarctic Survey. However, might not, given the Heavy Snow forecast. Lets hope its a case of massive over-caution by the Met Office.....

Re: Thursday Night - Blue Ball

no sign of this mythic snowfall yet. (5pm)

provided i get home on time i will be out.

Wouldn't mis the chance of a snow ride for anything.

Re: Thursday Night - Blue Ball


Planning to ride tonight. Anyone willing to bring a spare 26" tube for me? I appear to have exhausted my supply!

No snow yet, near the start that is.
