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.

XC trails around Meldreth? (new member question)

Hi everyone, I'm looking for recommendations of locations to ride over the Xmas period as I'm likely to be staying around the Meldreth area.

I ride xc and am somewhat confident- though still being a tad careful due to recovering from recent shoulder operation.

Any pointers and advice would be super greatly appreciated. xxx

Hi Kate, you could do worse than exploring the area east of Royston- Barkway, Barley, around the Icknield way and the "Heydon Alps". It might be sticky but there are slopes and odd bits of woodland.
