SLAUGHTER XV (2021)Its looking like Saturday 16th October 9 am, so loads of time to train .
Starting point forest office .
A Reminder*It is NOT a race , not even a sportive , nor a challenge . If you want any of these see Mr McMahon .
* At the risk of boring you let me just reiterate and apologise in advance for shouting IT IS NOT A RACE.
*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, don’t 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,medal, buff , plastic bag full of sh*te 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 .There are no markers or signs ..just keep up!
*Wear a helmet ( the only rule) ,in fact bar the helmet we are quite happy for you to be totally naked . This is NOT because we care about you or for your safety in any way , its just we don’t 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 ( with the exception of Kenny)
