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.

Thursday 3rd Sept - NOT the Histon Beer Festival, Red Lion, Histon

Hi All,

Even though the Beer Festival has been cancelled this year, we can still honour it's spirit.

So join us for a ride this Thursday - the aim is to get to the Red Lion no later than 9 pm to test the normally wide range of ales on offer.

I will ride in from Over if there are any takers for that particular excursion.

PT

Why not, the weather looks to be drying off late afternoon so should be a pleasant evening. (Apart from the headwind home for me...)

Will it not be quite busy due to others thinking the same?

Was it due to be this week?

If too busy do we have a plan B? I like the Pub by 9pm bit - just like the old days with Jacob RIP
