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.

Tomorrows Ride

Gents, Last Thursday was great so I'm back for more tomorrow evening if thats ok? If it is ok I'll probably drive to the pub again and cycle into town, is anyone else planning on doing that?
Cheers, Rob A

Re: Tomorrows Ride

Hi Rob,

I'm not out but leave plenty of time to ride in tonight - the Red House is a good distance from Brookside.

Best route is to cross the road from the pub and take the byway east north-east to the B1046, just outside Kingston - but take care as it can be quite rutted and hazardous. One of us usually falls off here!

From there it's either up the hill to Highfields and take the Wimpole Way to Cambridge past Harwick and Coton, or road it on the B1046 through Toft, Comberton, Barton and down to Cambridge on the A603.

Best regards

PT

Re: Tomorrows Ride

Hi Rob

Riding in from the pub is too far for me - requires too early a start. I'm going to drive to Hardwick and leave my car there. That gives a 6 mile ride in to Brookside, and a 5 mile ride after the pub back to the car. I'm aiming to start riding from Hardwick at 7pm...

Dom, Where in Hardwick are you thinking of parking? I'll meet you & cycle in together if you like? Rob A
