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.

Happy Holidays from Houston!!

Hey everyone,

Seeing that photo of Duncan having fun in the clay brought a tear to my eye ... not that we miss the mud, but we do miss the rides, and the beers :-)

Merry Chistams and Happy New year to you lot - hope 2012 is a good one, and if we find ourselves back in Cambridge for a visit, we'll hopefully be able to squeeze a cheeky ride in too

cheers,
Rich + G

Hi. Rich & G.
That ride brought a tear to my eye too--NO BEER that evening as we were so knackered after declagging the bikes & getting rained on during the ride back to town. Suppose the weather is just as bad in Houston 'eh??
Season's greetings to y'all in the US of A

Re: Happy Holidays from Houston!!

Hey guys we miss you here in Cambridge, hope you had a great Christmas. I was thinking of you when my son was watching Santa fly around the world on line Christmas Eve. Come back soon for a pint and a ride in all this mud.

Re: Happy Holidays from Houston!!

Happy Christmas and a happy New Year guys.

I must admit that every time i'm out in the mud and rain I think of you and wish you were back here enjoying our lovely winter weather with us :)

Don't forget to get in touch if you make it back over here mate.

Hi Rich and G,

I bet it's been snowing there too....

We're missing you too, but it helps following your facebook posts. Keep them up!

Happy New Year

Come on you know you want too We are...ahem.... were an important nation before those slinky types nicked our plastic (unfair dinkum)and showed us how to develop a business model (well infact I don't think they did that.... they just picked up the pieces).
