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.

Quy - Tuesday october 22

Hello cammtb enthusiasts

Is anyone planning on riding tmrw eve? It is reasonably local for me so planning to ride. Maybe a roman road, alien corner, fulbourn, fulbourn fen and into quy?

Re: Quy - Tuesday october 22

Hi Adriano, I am planning to be out, the weather looks good, but Fulbourn Fen isn't good for me! Lots could intervene today so will confirm later.

Re: Quy - Tuesday october 22

How about fulbourn, wilbrahams, up and over to bottisham and then into Quy?

Re: Quy - Tuesday october 22

Sounds good, just waiting for a few matters to be resolved. But deffo still on for it

Re: Quy - Tuesday october 22

Yep definitiey on. See you (and possibly others) at the start.

Re: Quy - Tuesday october 22

Great route , thanks Adriano, and only 39 miles on the block when I got back , couldn’t force myself round the block to make it an epic. Nice pint of Landlord too 🍺
