Cam MTB - the Cambridge Mountain Bikers' Forum

Click on the "return to website" button to see our new website with loads more details of who we are, where and when we ride and much more.



  • 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.

Shameless Plug for sponsorship

Hi guys,
As I am sure you are all aware/sick of hearing, I and a colleague from work are going to attempt to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats, in 6 days, in mid July starting on Sunday 11th and intending to finish on Friday 16th.

Well here it is then, a shameless plug for sponsorship, in aid of the Arthur Rank Hospice on Mill Road.

I won’t labour on too much about it as I have done that already, but if anyone is inclined to part with a few of their hard earned beer tokens it would be much appreciated.

the just giving site we are running is:-

Many thanks

Re: Shameless Plug for sponsorship

any way i can't walk more than about 250 meters in my road shoes, i tried it in the Alps when i destroyed a tyre. now where did i leave that 1000cc engine?

Great - you'll be able to some extra laps while we sleep a bit during Mountain Mayhem
