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.

Tamarind Tuesday

Hi all

I have been a bit disorganised, and I have no idea who's coming to the Tamarind tomorrow night.

It's a bit late notice so I made a block booking for 15 people at about 20:30. However, I get the impression they'd be happy to accommodate a few more. So let me know who's keen to attend, and maybe I can expand / cut down the amount of people?

Is a finishing time of 20:30 achievable, runslist fairies?

It's my farewell ride, but I'll still be around, and if I'm not swamped with last minute packing issues, I'm hoping to make Thetford Thursday, so if you can't make tomorrow night, maybe I'll see you Thursday night.

Cheers!
Riaan

I'd love a curry but unfortunately will have to make do with burgers all week as I'm in the US. Have a good curry, bon chance for SA. It's been great riding with you over the years (when you've been out). Hope you make it back again sometime

Re: Tamarind Tuesday

Are we meeting at 7.30 as usual and then more or less taking a slightly roundabout route to the Tamarind then to arrive around 8.30?

Re: Tamarind Tuesday

I'm sure that's the plan Rick, yes.
