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.

Whittlesford?

I'm currently in Whittlesford so could save some time and effort by going directly to the pub and awaiting the arrival of enthusiastic cyclists.

Is anyone planning on riding tonight?

Re: Whittlesford?

I shall dust off the 29ers and come along for a ride!

No beer for me tonight though as having a dry September

Cheers

Re: Whittlesford?

Yes I should be out

Re: Whittlesford?

No. Back mildly f*cked, as you know. Codeine now kicking in, though...… mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Nothing hurts at all but I'm covered in my own drool.

I'm planning to be out, still carrying my upper arm injury sustained on the 14th June Babraham caper. (Basically cant lift the bike over my head).

How did you manchester your back this time Tom?

Re: Whittlesford?

May or may not join you depending on work, at the moment it is not looking promising :-(

Re: Whittlesford?

Hi Pete,

It went while I was tilting forward to load the dishwasher yesterday morning, however, I suspect that the damage was done while loading and unloading our luggage to our hire car whilst on holiday.

Hope that your arm continues to improve.

TOM
