10 worst bits of mountain bike riding advice I’ve been given by randoms

Yes I get that a lot. In my case I put it down to ageism.

Most common advice is that "I should get a mountain bike" - seem to think I only just thought of riding off road or something. I find it particularly amusing when out on my Carlton Corsair (early eighties clubman/ light tourer) and have just ridden a "red route" by accident without noticing, as it was a small part of a through route for me.
