That what I'm worried about. Not for the helmet but just the fact that I haven't ridden off road on rigid for years and I've always been much lacking in the skills department.
Come to that I've hardly ridden at all in the last couple of years and I'm just in the beginning of my fitness comeback, but I'm used to my full sus bailing me out when I do venture off road! So far the retro has just been taking me to work on slicks.
Can anyone tell me how tough the Saturday ride is? Didn't think it looked too bad from the pics.
If I go to Dalby on the Sunday I think I'll have to let the side down with my susser. I last did the red run the year before last (actually my last proper ride if I think about it) and really don't fancy it on a rigid bike. I'm even too scared to ride it on clipless pedals so that should tell you something about my skill level!
Anyway, I'm reviving the sus with new wheels so it's calling for the dust blowing of it!
