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.

Thursday 25th - Train Out, Bike Back: Elsenham

Hi all,

This week it's Train Out - Bike Back, starting with a train ride to Elsenham.

Just checking train times, there's one leaving Cambridge North at 19:13, calling at Cambridge at 19:20, Shelford at 19:25, Whittlesford at 19:30 and arriving at Elsenham at 19:49.

Beers to be drunk on a hilltop.

See you there.

Sounds like a plan

Re: Thursday 25th - Train Out, Bike Back: Elsenham

Let me have a think about it - not sure i'm ready for public transport quite yet !

Re: Thursday 25th - Train Out, Bike Back: Elsenham

Sounds grand and looks like a great night for it. However I think the distance will be too much for the bone on bone contact I am currently experiencing.

Re: Thursday 25th - Train Out, Bike Back: Elsenham

Yes, I’m in.

Me too!

Re: Thursday 25th - Train Out, Bike Back: Elsenham

Don't forget your face coverings for the train.

Norman, you can keep yours on after.

Sounds like a grand day out - I'm in!
That makes it 6 I guess?

Re: Thursday 25th - Train Out, Bike Back: Elsenham

Not for me tonight - its too flaming hot to be doing any cycling imo. Might call in at the Skinny a bit after 10 for a swift half, if anyone is still there. Have a great ride and dont forget your hand sanitiser.
