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.

Hoping to join a ride..

Hi all.I have asked previously for advice on here with regards to routes to ride MTB around Cambridge and you suggested to join you all on one of your rides.

I am hoping to join you on Thursday if thats ok, work & family commitments allowing. (I won't actually know workwise whether ill be available until 1800ish on Thursday, but family-wise i don't see any problems..)

Hopefully see you all then.

Tristan.

Tristan,

Apologies that nobody has replied until now. Hope to see you out tonight in the sunshine if you can make it.

Hi Richard,

No worries. Sorry i didn't turn up, had a bit of a family crisis (to put it mildly.)

I may have more time to join another time now,

Many thanks,
Tristan.
