With the arrival of better weather Mountain Bike riders will tend to spend a lot of the Saturday sessions in Hainault Forest.
Can you therefore please try to ensure that riders bring a lightweight small backpack, into which they can store clothing, as a number of our riders warm up quite quickly and feel the need to remove outer layer of clothing. Such a pack could also be used to carry a snack and water (if their bike is missing a water cage).
Can MTB riders also ensure bring a spare inner tube, (these can be purchased from Redbridge Cycling Centre).
Twigs on branches can potentially scratch riders eyes, so we would recommend that MTB riders also wear a pair of protective glasses or sun glasses. Bear in mind that cheaper models can shatter on impact so would recommend you use glasses that flex on impact.
