  • 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.

Out tonight?

A quick reminder that tonight's ride starts (and ends) at the Red Lion in Histon, usual time of 7.30pm. Forecast is for it to stay dry but cold, with a chilly Northeasterly. Brrrrrr!

See you later

Re: Out tonight?

For I have ventured far and wide,
I've crossed the fens, the great divide.

I have bathed in the rising sun,
the evening dusk, had midnight fun.

It's sometimes muddy and sometimes dry
Sometimes I push, sometimes I fly.

Through rain and wind and ice and snow,
I've travelled fast, I've travelled slow.

But now tonight it's not just me,
a lonely biker, full of glee.

A rowdy bunch! A cycling pack!
I'll be out, but at the back...

Re: Out tonight?

Now if you feel that you can't go on (can't go on)
Because all of the hills have gone (all the hills have gone)
And your life is filled with much confusion (much confusion)
When an increase in altitude is just an illusion (increase in altitude is just an illusion)
And your world around is crumbling down, come on me old fruit
reach out come on you bikers reach on out for Dommmm

When you feel lost and about to give up (to give up)
Cause your ride just ain't good enough (just ain't good enough)
And you feel the world has gone flat (has gone flat)
And your drifting out into a bog all on your own (drifting out into a bog)
And your sure you don't need another cog, darlin
reach out come on bikers, reach out for Dommmm
reach out reach out for Dommmm
He'll be there to look after you
And Dom'll be there to guide you back from The loo.

Domm'll be there to make sure you won't follow through
Domm'll be there to love and comfort you
I can tell the way you hang your head (hang your head)
Your not sure about this fen ahead, now your afraid (you're afraid)
And through the tears you look around (look around)
But there's no piece of land to be found (no piece of land to be found)
I know what your thinking,
You're alone now, no webbed feet of your own, but bikers
reach out, come on bikers reach out for Dommmmm
reach out reach out.......... just look over your shoulder
Dom'll be there to give you all the help you need
And Dom'll be there you can always depend on him
Dom'll be there to always see you through
Dom'll be there to guide you back to The Lion.

Oh yeah, I'll be there !!
