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.

I’ll be out

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

I'll be out, with a bigger backpack than Pat I expect.

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

I hope to be out for a 7pm start

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

7.30 START NOT 7!!!

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

I hope to ride as well tonight, not sure if I can make 7:00 so I'll be aiming for 7:30.

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

7:30 for me as well. There's no early pub closing, which was the reason for 7pm last autumn (IIRC)

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

7.30 works better for me anyway. See you then.

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

i'm going to be out too.
we can compare back packs at the start if you like Tony:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Re: Six Bells Tonight 7.00 pm start? - With Duffel Coat

I like Tony too, but I don't think it should be a pre-requisite for back pack comparisons.
