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.

Re: Still no runs list, so what about The RED LION...HISTON

I'm not TT ing tonight so could be looking for a shortish bimble to a favoured hostelry. Anyone else planning to be out? I think the dust should have settled too.

I plan to ride Tonight.

The weather forecast is set to improve c. 7.00 pm.

I fancy a ride. Pub Immaterial as long as it has seats outside and umbrellas.

I plan to ride, although I'm fighting off a swollen leg caused by yet another mozzie bite.

The Histon Red Lion seems as good a joint as any and I can ride into town and home agin from the pub.

Some minor flooding out our way so knobblier tyres might be the order of the day.
