Hi Sarah,

Im a little worried about the really strict rules protection in the
trials competition. I can understand the importance of wearing a helmet
and perhaps shin pads, but I think the rule about having gloves and
wrist guards is really un-nessasary. I don't ride with or own a set of
gloves or wrist guards and don't intend on buying some just to use for
BUC.
Do we really have to wear all that stuff on the list?

On another note, thanks for taking on the huge task of organising a
BUC. I think the logo with an umbrella is very relevant to BUC, haha!

Thanks,
Edd

fairly pointless post just to get me subscribed to the thread

Thanks for the updates Sarah. BTW, the link under the logo isn't
working (missed the quote after the URL)

I'm still trying to organise permission for us to hold a road race, but
it's not looking hopeful at the moment. I've got one more chance (the
local police), but if that fails then we'll just have to have a
non-competetive road ride (and just happen to notice who gets back first
)

The wearing of the listed pro is a condition of our insurance and is
in the risk assessments of that event which affect the cost of first aid
cover. So yes, you will need to wear* gloves or wrist guards as well as
a lid and leg pro to compete in trials or street.

Sarah
You really have NO gloves... don't your hands get cold in winter? beg
and borrow.

Other than shin protection in street I'm reasonably sure these
conditions match the IUF rule book, just borrow your mum's gloves

Alternatively nearer the time PM me and you can borrow some wrist
guards, if I bring a big wheel then I'd have them with me.

hey,
i am interested in going (whether i will be able to or not)
obviously nearer the time would it be possible for a full timetable of
the times (roughly) and days in which the different events happen?

thanks :-)

by the way i agree that the logo is fitting
