Mudguards and winterising

With the onset of inclement weather it’s time to remind everyone to be considerate to other riders and yourself. Mudguards make a big difference to comfort when conditions worsen, even better with a mudflap; highlighted by last saturdays ride where a farmer had kindly coated the road in mud, and following anyone without guards gave you a facefull of countryside, plus the rider themselves an unsightly brown stain!
Punctures and mechanical problems also become more of an issue in poor conditions: make sure your tyres are in good condition, brake pads and chain aren’t worn out. Oh and check your spare inertubes and pump are ok.
