  • 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.
  • Don't ride too close to the person in front. If they crash into a badger, you'll need time to swerve.

The Royal Oak, Barrington

Any takers for tonight's ride?

Re: The Royal Oak, Barrington

Yes I intend to ride. Given the abysmal state of the Royal Oak last time we visited, perhaps a slight detour to the Hare and Hounds at Harlton would be in order?

Re: The Royal Oak, Barrington

i will be out for a second ride this week.
see you at the start.
destination not an issue, i'm NOT doing a "Dom"

Re: The Royal Oak, Barrington

Count me in, Harlton sounds good to me.

Re: The Royal Oak, Barrington

It's a "yes" from me also.

And, yes, let's go with the H&H.


Revised venue: The Hare & Hounds Harlton

Yep, H&H fine by me too.

Re: Revised venue: The Hare & Hounds Harlton

Not out tonight, resting my legs ahead of Saturday

Re: Revised venue: The Hare & Hounds Harlton

Had a meal in the oak recently and it was miles better, lot's of different types of beer etc.
Was hoping to be out on my birthday but stuck at Corby skate park with 3 12 year olds🙄
Bloody teachers and their Baker days

Change of plan for me. will not make the start, but hope to see you guys at the H&H. Had a physio session on my shoulder and recommended not to mtb it tonight. Road bike OK (as long as I dont have to lift it over my head!)
