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.

Thurs 21st Dec morning ride & pub lunch ?

Morning all,
How was the Christmas party?

I am hoping to go for a daytime ride next Thurs 21st Dec - current forecast shows next Thurs as the only sunny day but I am sure this will change!!

Plan would be to meet around 9-9.30am at the usual place & ride for 3 hrs with a stop off for a pub lunch somewhere rural & then back home to wrap Christmas presents.

Let me know if anyone fancies it & some suggestions of 2 1/2 - 3hr route too?

Cheers
GN

Sounds like a plan but I am not helping you wrap your Christmas presents.

Re: Thurs 21st Dec morning ride & pub lunch ?

Sounds like a good idea. Grantchester? Stapleford?

Re: Thurs 21st Dec morning ride & pub lunch ?

How about the blue Ball in Grantchester for lunchen?

Dunc can you think of a fun route for a few hrs in the winter sun?

Re: Thurs 21st Dec morning ride & pub lunch ?

Will do. 15-20 miles dependent on weather

Re: Thurs 21st Dec morning ride & pub lunch ?

Should we go for 9.15am at Bento’s? Not quite as sunny as the early forecast but should be dry. I’ll ring the Blue Ball today & book a table for trois:)

Re: Thurs 21st Dec morning ride & pub lunch ?

3? 3?
I thought your original suggestion was trois heurres not finish at. I can do 9.30 with lunch some time between 12 and 1? Need to be home for 3 (popular number it seems) to rest and recouperate for an evening dinner at some friends in Comberton.
What do you think?
What does Tony think? (no me neither)

Re: Thurs 21st Dec morning ride & pub lunch ?

Trois is 3 people not 3pm!!

I’m good for 9.30am - Tony good for you?
