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.

Fulbourn with Tina Turner?

Anyone planning on riding tonight? The rain will be gone, the wind will have dropped, the moon is almost full and we should arrive in time for the Tina Turner question in the Pub Quiz. It's simply the best.

Re: Fulbourn with Tina Turner?

Yes me.

Re: Fulbourn with Tina Turner?

Me too

Re: Fulbourn with Tina Turner?

Alas not me. I shall be doing my first turbo session instead. Not ridden for quite a while now, so its going to be a shock to the system. But not nearly as hard as keeping up with you guys. Have a good one.

Re: Fulbourn with Tina Turner?

Sadly, I have to work.
