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.

Re: It really won't be Over 'til it's Over

Hi Pete,

I'm planning to leave by 18:30 - that leaves plenty of time for punctures on the way to Cambridge. It's usually a 50 minute journey.

Did you want to call me when you're ready - you could leave your vehicle close to mine - postcode CB24 5LX.

Regards

TOM

Ok will do, thanks Tom

Re: It really won't be Over 'til it's Over

Should be out but will be running late so will endeavour to catch you up. Failing that will see you in Over
