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.

Ride on Thursday Apr. 11

Hi all,

I've recently moved into Cambridge, and I would love to join your rides.

Can anybody confirm that you are riding this Thursday?

Thank you,

Marius

Hi Marius - I plan to ride tonight but may not make it to the start as I have to travel an unreasonably distance to collect a car from a repair garage. I will definitely be at the pub.

Anyone else out or making excuses?
