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.

Home game for me. I will be riding.

Re: Tonight (25.8.16)

See you there

Re: Tonight (25.8.16)

Gents, thanks for taking me around on my first outing. Great ride, impressed by your route finding/knowledge. Once left to my own devices I managed to get lost in Trumpington Meadows thinking I was taking a really clever shortcut home.

Hey Bart, good to meet you and thanks for kind words. We will show you many short cuts over the next few months, if you can remember them after a couple of beers you will be doing well. Next time you are out please make sure your brakes are binding to give the rest of us a fighting chance :)
