  • 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.

Local, not Thetford

Hi All,

After last week's quagmire, I'm hoping for a bit of something colder and frostier this evening, before the snow starts anyway.

Given that snow is on the cards and I have some 'Dad's Taxi-ing' to do either side of riding, I'm not going to travel to Thetford this evening.

I'm up for a local ride, though. Anyone else? Thinking perhaps Grantchester - Blue Ball or Green Man, or even to see if I can get checked out of the Rupert Brooke for a laugh.


Re: Local, not Thetford

Not tonight unfortunately.

Re: Local, not Thetford

I got a ride in this morning in the sun so will pass on this evening.

Re: Local, not Thetford

I would prefer Thetford, but i'm up for a local ride if people are so inclined.

Re: Local, not Thetford

It may just be me and you!

Bring money :smile:

Re: Local, not Thetford

Not me. I'm ailing but would rather be ale-ing.

Re: Local, not Thetford

Do I owe you some more ? I thought i'm up to date with 2015 subs for the forum ?

Re: Local, not Thetford

Believe it or not, I am still collecting 2015 subs.....

Re: Local, not Thetford

alright - make sure i've paid up to 2019 by the time we leave the pub later on !
