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.

Rides resuming

With the end of lockdown 2 rides will resume this evening. As we are Tier 2 these will follow the guidelines pinned to the top of the forum, ie groups of no more than 6. If you haven’t done so please read before attending.

The plan for this evening is to head to Coton Nature Reserve for a BYO beer. The forecast is not brilliant but apparently the rain will stop at 4 pm!

Anyone up for it?

Re: Rides resuming

i will be out for a pre birthday ride in the mud.
i revise my estimate of 4pm to 7pm for deminishing chance of rain.
it is almost 100% chance of stopping rain before christmas..... one year.... maybe 2021
