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.

Last Hurrah Thurday 10th

Last ride before the new rules. Probably first lights-on-at-the-start ride of the autumn too. Where are we going?
Queen's head at Newton is a group favourite, but a poor candidate for social distancing.

Re: Last Hurrah Thurday 10th

The suggestion was the Six Bells in Fulbourn as destination tonight.

The Queens Head would be great but it closes at 9pm so not really practical at present.

Hope to be out but it will depend on work.
