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.

Black Horse, Dry Drayton

As it's more or less a local pub stop for me, I was planning on cycling into Cambridge for tonight's jaunt.

Anyone else out?

Chance of a shower, perhaps, but it looks mostly dry following mid afternoon today.

Hi Pasty, according to it's website, the Black Horse closes at 9 p.m on a Thursday! I suggest we go somewhere more amenable- Hare and Hounds at Harlton?

Re: Black Horse, Dry Drayton

I was 50/50 with the Black Horse, but if it’s the Hairy Hounds I’ll deffo be out!

Re: Black Horse, Dry Drayton

OK let's go with Hare and Hounds Pete, I'll start another thread for it in case Dry Drayton is putting off anyone else!

Re: Black Horse, Dry Drayton

Helps me - A1 south closed so I may not get home for a bike ride into Cambridge.
