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.

Thursday - Histon Beer Festival

Anyone out tonight?

As I'm off to Yorkshire tomorrow with Tony, Barry and Richard, I'm not going to be there at the start but will meet you at the beer festival.

Any takers? We usually do a short ride so that we get there at beer o'clock, which is 21:00. The beer is usually fan-tastic.

Need a route? I'm trying to put one on Dirty Muddy Friends FB group, but so far I've managed to post it to my own page. I'll keep trying.

PT

Was hoping to be out tonight, but am on jury service in Huntingdon which is scheduled
To run late today, worse luck. I'll play it by ear, and update later.🙏

Re: Thursday - Histon Beer Festival

I'm going to Woburn tomorrow for some stupid swim/cycle/run thing starting at a rediculious 7:15am Saturday.

So like Tom I will be at the pub later to say hi and good luck etc.

Not going to make the start 😂
