Hi all,
Hopefully got a trip to bpw mid June, just wanted to ask some advise on what's best to wear there protection wise..??
ie: fullface helmet or trail lid ,full knee shin, elbows etc..
Recently I seem to be throwing myself off the bike more :shock:
Just had a hard fall last week that knocked me out, cracked my helmet all the way through and ended with a short trip to hospital.. :crazy:
I now want to try and prevent any more damage..!!

Stay on target...!!

Full face
As many pads as you feel comfortable with
Down tube protection for the bike.
Water bottles (to leave up top or by bus)
A big bottle of MTFU pills.
And a big smile as you'll wear it out.

Yep a good full face, knee and shin pads + elbow pads, and also body protection, as you say, your always falling off, and fall of at BPW and it'll hurt as the rocks are real and very pointy.

But the place is so much fun and do all things within your limits, they even have a green graded trail if you not so sure.

A few of us are there end of June as well
