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.

Thetford this evening new rider

I met Andy at the weekend and would like to join you at Thetford this evening if I may. 8pm with lights? Where/how will I find you?

Re: Thetford this evening new rider

Hi Simon

I'm not sure if i'll be coming tonight.

The carpark is at ip27 0su.

We'll be the guys with the bikes :-)

Re: Thetford this evening new rider

Thanks Andy. I'll rock up this evening and introduce myself

Hi Simon

Unfortunately I'm not able to make Thetford this evening. Attendance can be a bit hit and miss, especially given the weather, so hopefully you will not be on your own.
