Cam MTB - the Cambridge Mountain Bikers' Forum

Click on the "return to website" button to see our new website with loads more details of who we are, where and when we ride and much more.



  • 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.

Duncan! I am flipping knackered

I didn't get in til 11:30, without stopping at the pub!

Paul do you have mileage and route for last night.

I think that is the longest Cammtb ride I have ever done, I hope Harry got back OK and was not put off ever riding again.

Re: Duncan! I am flipping knackered

Also! I have looked at a map and it has confirmed my suspicions...on what planet is Comberton on the way back to Fulbourn from Orwell?

Re: Duncan! I am flipping knackered

Got home, ate pasta, collapsed. Only half an hour late for work this morning.

Great ride though - looking forward to the next one!

And thanks to whoever donated the gel. Don't think I would have made it back without it...

Re: Duncan! I am flipping knackered

i did 40 miles door to door so you will have done a few more Claire!

Have emailed you a gpx file with the route in....

Re: Duncan! I am flipping knackered

When will you learn not to trust Duncan, last week he suggested an extra 3 mile loop and it took us about an hour and everyone's GPS's seemed to make it an extra 8 mile loop....luckily we all enjoyed the extra loop

Re: Duncan! I am flipping knackered

Sorry......... thought it was weather, small group, etc etc etc
