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.

***** NEW COVID-19 RULES FOR CAMMTB RIDES****

Hi All,

Since the Rule of Six came into force, we have been complying by default as only 6 riders have turned up!

That's changed recently as more than six have either indicated that they will ride, have ridden or turned up to the pub.

Under these circumstances we will continue to respond in the manner that we have already started:- split into two groups when riding, socially distance as per the guidelines and remain as two groups in the pub.

Now, if more than 12 turn up, we will have to get our calculators out....

Or we could all go grouse shooting.
