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.

Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Anyone else out, actually hoping to ride my self this week!

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday


Hi. New to Cambridge/England. (We moved from Denmark the day before the world shut down in March.) I’m looking to ride with some folks (and have a pint afterwards!) can I join your ride? 60+, Canadian, moderately fit, experienced mtber. Have lights.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Of course you can. Watch the forum on the day of the ride, post to say you're coming and introduce yourself at the meeting point. Pay attention to the start time, it has shifted to 7.00 recently due to the earlier closing of the pubs.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

I will join you for tomorrow night’s ride. See you then.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Hello all, I'll be happy to join the group for today's ride. Cheers

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Hope to make it tonight at 7:00

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Corli and myself out tonight.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

I'll be out tonight. See you all later.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Yep, me too.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

and me !

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

so far it appears tonights ride is upto 9. I will not join as this is against government
covid/uk cycling rules group of 6.
Really think this needs to be made clear in the original post/now.
I would be happy to join and ride to another venue if others join me... Max of six.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Last week we were 11 so we rode in 2 groups and split into 4 tables in the pub.

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

Ok, now I know I will be out tonight. Perhaps we can state that in the initial post so that we ALL know!

Re: Three Horseshoes Stapleford Thursday

In case anyone is wondering - I will not be out tonight despite having fitted mud tyres. It is the Ford Cycling Club AGM tonight (on line ) and I must attend if I wake up in time ( after a good luncheon at the Tickell) 😊🍷
