Re: Are elbow and knee/shin pads worth it?

I have been Mbiking for about 6 months now, when I started being new I had a few tumbles and scrapes, and also got bit by the peddles a few times! I didn't wear pads to start and now have some interesting scars on my legs!! I now wear shin and knee guards and these have a few dinks where they have s...

I would rather a dozen false calls with good intent than someone not bothering. I have lost count of the calls where someone has rang in during the day to say 'I just thought I would let you know I got woken last night by some terrible screams / banging / sound of glass breaking' etc!

When you come down the A3075 you will pass 'the Plume Of Feathers' pub at a place called Penhallow (3 or 4 miles past Goonhavern). Top Sunday dinners and good food at other times.
