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.

Grantchester tonight

Hey, anyone out tonight? I presume it's not going to get less muddy this side of spring...
I can also bring the Ay Up stuff that people ordered, and if only a few are coming I can either leave it with someone who comes more often than me, bring it into the city during the day when I'm at work or have you come around and pick it up from my place in Comberton.

Re: Grantchester tonight

hope to be out, meetings permitting....

Re: Grantchester tonight

Re: Grantchester tonight

I am riding tonight
I didn't order any Ay-Up bits

See you there


Re: Grantchester tonight

thanks for the answer Jason, i have already spoken to Dom and will be collecting on his behalf.

i'm sure it will be no problem to pass on all of this as we have the MTB christmas party next Tuesday, so everyone should be there.

see you later


Re: Grantchester tonight

Not out tonight, man flu

Re: Grantchester tonight

Ditto Jon M - Manflu :(
However, confident that is will have passed in time for the festive booze up on Tuesday!

Re: Grantchester tonight


Running a bit behind - hope to catch up if I'm not there in time.
