What kind of chain ring guard do you need up front to take part?

What kind of chain ring guard do you need up front to take part?

A by no means exhaustive list of things that I've seen people using:

-Bash ring larger than biggest chainring
-HPVelotechnic-style enclosed chainring guard
-ICE-style open chainring guard
-Very obviously home-made equivalents of the above
-Creative bodgery featuring materials such as wood, bamboo, metal sheet, multi-layered cross-ply Correx, and in one instance, a bit of plastic curtain runner
-Fairings that enclose the chainset

Basically, if it stands a reasonable chance of preventing chainring-impailment, it'll do.   :thumbsup:
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Heather warned me that that was likely to happen once I knew how to do all the things...   :facepalm:

I retaliated with Ideas™ about categories, because  a) the women's class needed dragging into the Century of the Fruitbat  and  b) they weren't confusing enough already.

Since I'm in calendar mode, let's bump this thread with a link to the now-finalised 2020 race season: http://www.bhpc.org.uk/Events/2020.aspx

(Dates have been added to the YACF calendar.)

A late kickoff this year, which will delight anyone who suffered bilateral calf cramps in the freezing rain at Curborough   :hand:

Maybe see some of you at Hillingdon...

Or not.  We've cancelled it, and will probably be cancelling further 2020 events in due course.
