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.

Full Moon Thetford

Who's up for Thetford tonight? 8pm @ BCP.

For those that cant go on Duncan's ride as we have jobs.

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Owooooooot!

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Yes, I'm planning to ride tonight.

Weather forecast has a hint of thunder and lightning in it, but maybe not that far east.

Re: Full Moon Thetford

I'm in :)

Cheers

Re: Full Moon Thetford

I was thinking of joining you tonight but what's BCP?

Russell

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Hi Russell - are you the same Russell Stevens as lives in New Road, Over?

If so, do you want a lift?

Tom

PS BCP = Brandon Country Park.

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Hi Andy,
I can give you a lift if you like ? Normal time round my place - 7.10pm?

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Yes please Nigel

Re: Full Moon Thetford

no can do tonight, sorry, i'm on call this week so can't get out and/or be more than an hour from home or work.

hi "Russell Stevens", there is another post running by "Pete T", it looks as if he is running an alternate local ride from Cambridge (normal start point) if Brandon Country Park is not an option for you.

Re: Full Moon Thetford


Yes, I'll be at Thetford tonight. Space in the van if anyone wants a lift, leaving Waterbeach about 7pm.

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Hi Tom

I'm based in Chartfield Rd Cherry Hinton, so probably not the same one. Thanks for the lift offer but since there's a local ride alternative I'll go for that now.

Cheers
Russell

Re: Full Moon Thetford

No problem Russell - I'd say that you're definitely not the same Russell Stevens that I know!

Have a good ride.

Tom

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Not out tonight. Real men are riding in Yorkshire this weekend - eh Pasty?

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Good luck with that, just as the weather breaks!

Are you 'soloing' or do you have another victim/partner?

PT

Re: Full Moon Thetford

Afraid I am missing yet another ride! Am collecting tony's bbq which he is kindly lending for the Fenduro after party. What he hasn't realized yet is that it will be raffled off as a prize.

Have a good one!
