Some Slaughter Facts For Next Saturday

  • It is not a race , not even a sportive , nor a challenge . If you want any of these see Mr McCabe .
  • It is a group cycle, consider it a long day out on the bike. If you are fast go down to the back and encourage someone, dont spend half a hour waiting at the top getting cold and grumpy.
  • There is no entrance fee  and hence no support , insurance ,food , t-shirt or any responsibility taken, although we would (usually) consider it bad form to leave someone behind.
  • It is a hard day out both for you and the bike . Make sure both are well prepared and have adequate spares/tubes/food etc.
  • Because its four loops you can leave most food etc at the bottom as you will pass on each loop.
  • Leave no Trace …at all, bar your tyre print .
  • Wear a helmet ( the only rule) , This is NOT because we care about you or for your safety in any way , its just we dont like the sight of blood ! Similarly ,If you feel you might need a first aid kit bring one along.
  • Respect other mountain users , walkers /runners , because we might be a big group especially on the descents..remember point 1.
  • When in pain ..SMILE .
  • Grumpy cyclists need not apply .
