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.

The white thing in the town of foxes?

So it might be wet or it might not and it will be over 40mins back to town after.
Anyone else out for a moist blast in the countryside?

Re: The white thing in the town of foxes?

I'll be out as I'm not OMMing this year.

Suggest heading to the Plough at Shepreth rather than Poxton - it's a better pub.

Re: The white thing in the town of foxes?

I’m planning to be out tonight and would second Tony’ s propsal of the Shepreth Plough

Re: The white thing in the town of foxes?

Re: The white thing in the town of foxes?

Not those horrible gloopy fields full of gates again I hope!
(Not out tonight btw.)

Re: The white thing in the town of foxes?

Might be, and some extra bits round Barrington to Orwell
