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.

As there's no posting of a car assisted rendezvous, I assume we are having a local ride tonight?

If so, do we have any suggestions for a venue? I for one am keen to try out the Barton Hoops - not been in there under the current management.

Lets see what lunchtime browsing brings......

Re: Thursday?!?

I don't think I will be able to make it out tonight, hoping to get back out next Thurs.

The Dog & Duck in Therfield was a great car assist ride last summer :)

Re: Thursday?!?

Happy to go to the Hoops. Almost every week is car assisted for me anyway....

Re: Thursday?!?

I expect to be joining you. Is Barton Hoops a definite? I might drop the car there and ride back to the start

Re: Barton Hoops

Hi Simon,

Yes lets make it definitely the Hoops Barton. Pasty looks to be OK with this and there are no other takers so far

Re: Barton Hoops

out on the road again tonight, but aiming to be at the pub when you are so i'm happy with the hoops at Barton.

Re: Barton Hoops

Not tonight school play takes precedence apparently. Luckily I was out with the Cherry Hinton splinter group yesterday.

Hopefully out next Tuesday for a ride that may or may not be on the runs list!
