Beginners Course – The Final Installment

After the first 3 weeks have been raining, dull and raining respectively, we’ll do a little sundance this weekend in the hope that the current fine weather lasts.

This Saturday we will be visiting the Mecca of MTBing, Three Rock.
We’ll meet at Ticknock Carpark at 10am and ride for about 2.5 hours.
Directions here
Parking available at the carpark, or at Taylors pub down the road.

This week’s Tech Talk will be on chains, specifically breaking and rejoining them.
As usual, you’ll require a helmet, gloves, rainjacket, food, water, spare tube, pump and a tool which fits all of the various parts of your bike (remembering things like spanners for bolts on wheels etc)

As ever, queries can be directed to committee AT

    great showing today, especially from MAD members, good to see so many coming out to help out – great day for a spin as well, perfect weather.
    The Rock n Roll section is riding so well these days, think everyone enjoyed it, except Ian and his group who got lost in the forest!
    The craic in MADjestic provided for a bit of entertainment, especially Steve’s crash, but he redeemed himself with a perfect drop-off soon after.

    Myself and Steve finished with a time trial down the boneshaker to finish, I got 5:04 with Steve on 5:08 or something close to that – it felt like we were going full tilt – will be very hard to knock 30 seconds off that time, but we’ll start off breaking the 5 min mark and see how it goes from there…
