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.

Is it Rampton tonight then?


So, based on previous posts I think the suggestion is for Rampton tonight and move Thetford to next Thursday?

Who's out tonight then?

That might suit me - I've been nursing a back twinge all week and don't want to aggravate it before Sunday's trip to Cannock Chase.

Plus it's close to my manor...

I'm up for Rampton tonight. Presumably the Black Horse?

Re: Is it Rampton tonight then?

Count me in. It would be a shame for a Northerner not to support one of the few Northern rides

The ride is near my house. Tom, I didn't know you had a manor. Have you moved?

Boy sitting this eve so not out. Going to ride with me best mate this arvo.

Re: Is it Rampton tonight then?

Dom, I just have ideas above my station.

Mind you, have you ever asked me for permission to ride there?

Re: Is it Rampton tonight then?

So why are we not going to Thetford as per the runs list or have I lost a week some how?

Re: Is it Rampton tonight then?

Well, the week before last the ride was going to be a drive-out and...

Oh, hell, I don't have the energy! Come to the Black Horse and a pint will induce me to tell you the whole sorry story!

Re: Is it Rampton tonight then?

Don't tell me that there has been a non forum conversation going on somewhere else.....we never had this kind of problem when I used to ride with CAM MTB!

Re: Is it Rampton tonight then?

Great ride tonight.....I missed not going to Thetford but the pub banter made up for it....even if the pub had run out of draft cider and then only had one bottle of aspalls cider before I ended up on bottled bulmers pear cider....so won't be going back there!
Good to see so many people out....certainly more than posted on the forum!
I guess I've done my annual ride so see you all at the xmas do!

Re: Is it Rampton tonight then?

A most enjoyable ride last night but I think there was an imposter in our midst! Someone posing as PeterF was seen drinking half a pint in the pub
