DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Waterbeach - it really is the place to be

Nice to come to the pub yesterday evening if not on a bike! Should be out next Tuesday.

For those too bewildered or technologically challenged, or just too plain lazy to follow Duncan's link last week, Pete and Paul, click here now. And if you liked that, here's an alternative (and I like to think, more exciting) view of Waterbeach life. There are probably people who think we're a bit odd, too...

Thanks for that Dom (as well as the email... you could well be right). I'm very glad I didn't miss it...

The second YouTube clip - coincidentally, when I rode to Brookside last night, there were a couple of guys the other side of the tracks from the Genome Path with serious looking sound recording gear, aimed at the passing trains...

Wow - wish I'd seen this video before we decided to live in Cambridge - Waterbeach rocks!!!
