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.

One night camp/stopover/WILD camp (shhhhoooooshhhh)

Seems to me we've been dealt a reasonable summer.
How about an accidental ride to a pub, (pwoahpwoa)r and then out to the hills/woods for a WILD CAMP, come the morn, bike back and work and we'll be feeling better than everyone (apart from that friendly laaaaady in the typing pool)
Come on, brmm brmm
