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.

New singletrack sections

Someone's been hard at work trying to open up some singletrack alongside the roman road. Have a look for it if you head out that way on your ride to the Six Bells. Its all on the left as you head out the RR towards Linton, after the established sections. Its a little loose and has lots of ivy in places at the moment, but some regular riding will help make it better.

There are also plans, I'm told, to take it even further and try to link all the small sections up. Eventually. Again, this is only hearsay.

Once I myself get to ride it I'll see if the garmin can upload it to opencyclemaps.

Re: New singletrack sections

Just tested them out and looking forward to when they all get joined up...I hope the good chap keeps the entrances and exits discreet

Re: New singletrack sections

Some of it will never be joined- unless someone heads out there with power tools!
Yes, the entrances need to be discreet- but also noticable for MTBers, so they get used and don't simply grow over again. Keep your eyes peeled for some ratty looking red tape that's noticeable, but not too much so....

Another section added near the junction of bridleway next to Wandlebury CP. One end is near a informational sign about the RR, and the other end is currently marked by a pile of horse shit.

Also, has the top of Gogs always been a dogging/crusing spot? Its creepy up there around lunchtimes and evenings.
