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.

New bridleway near Histon/Oakington

It opened a few days ago and links Gun's Lane (the track that runs from Histon up to Lambs Cross and beyond to Rampton) with the sheep shit bridleway from Histon up to the road near the guided busway at Westwick Hall.

has a link to a map.

I've not ridden it myself but was told by the horsey sorority.

Thanks for that, Paul, I'll take a look sometime soon.

Perhaps the horsey types could use snow-shoes to stop it getting too cut up in the mean-time?
