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.

Local ride tonight- Thurs 11 Aug- Hare and Hounds, Harlton

Will do a normal ride from Brookside tonight for those unable to do the car-assisted thing, if Hare and Hounds is shut tonight would plan to continue to Green Man at Grantchester.

Hope you guys had a good local bimble last night - I was just curious to know if the Hairy Hounds was open?

Re: Local ride tonight- Thurs 11 Aug- Hare and Hounds, Harlton

Hi Pete, yes it was open last night- but not for much longer- closing in October

Re: Local ride tonight- Thurs 11 Aug- Hare and Hounds, Harlton

Thanks Pete. That is a shame, perhaps we didn't visit it enough?

Re: Local ride tonight- Thurs 11 Aug- Hare and Hounds, Harlton

perhaps we needed to increase our chrisp and pork scratching quota too

Re: Local ride tonight- Thurs 11 Aug- Hare and Hounds, Harlton

Perhaps the landlord /lady could have tried being welcoming to punters. It often helps

Re: Local ride tonight- Thurs 11 Aug- Hare and Hounds, Harlton

It disappeared from the Tuesday runs list because it closed at 9. A shame as it was a great venue not so long ago.

I'm a strong believer that 80% of a pubs popularity is down to the landlords/employees personality and ability to make you welcome. 3 Horse shoes, Comberton.... I REST MY CASE.
Pity, maybe we should start a Bring Back Des campaign?
Those we're the days....

More like run it down, change it back to house and build in the car park
