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.

Tuesday evening ride

Hi, I’m working in the area and staying at the premier inn A14 J32.
I’m recently getting back into mtb after a nearly 10 (yes 10) year absence but have my bike with me and am looking for a ride tomorrow night.
I’ve checked your site and understand you’re out every Tuesday and wondered if I may join tomorrow. I am of questionable fitness at the moment but would love to get involved. I can’t seem to put any instant messenger details on here. But if someone would message me on 07703826170 to let me know any plans for tomorrow that would be great. Hope to hear from you.
Thanks
Rich
