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.

June 4th

Anyone up for a ride tonight I think we can do groups of 6 so long as we stay 2M apart, then skinny arms afterwards. I was planning to do Coton, to Bourne, over the 1198 then Hayley wood croydon old lane and back along the top of wimpole then through great eversden. But happy with whatever

Re: June 4th

Sounds a great route for me, Richard. Question is 1 can or two? Summer tyres now on, which is why we might get rain....

Re: June 4th

Weather looks good tonight, chance of rain sometime after 9pm

Re: June 4th

I'll be out. Will decide upon choice of tyres (and hence bike) nearer the time.

Re: June 4th

Yes. See you tonight.

Re: June 4th

Don't forget to bring a beer with you (or two)!

Re: June 4th

Give me a location and time for a beer - I may turn up, socially distanced for a quickie.

Given that you're going my way.

Re: June 4th

Norm, what about on the byway out to the 1198 (this side) under the trees somewhere at about 8:15

Re: June 4th

Sounds like a plan ! towards the Red House, but not quite there.
