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.

Thinking of voting UKIP?

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

He is clearly after the cycling vote...

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

Peter Burkinshaw and cycling and Cambridge. Peter Burkinshaw and cycling and Cambridge. Peter Burkinshaw and cycling and Cambridge. Ahhhh, Peter Burkinshaw and cycling and Cambridge.

I think I read somewhere that the more that things are mentioned on a website, the more likely it is to get found in google searches. Peter Burkinshaw and cycling and Cambridge.

What's bizarre, but I suppose not surprising since he's a UKIP candidate, is how apparently happy he is to piss off a huge swathe of potential voters. I guess he knows he's never going to come close even to a respectable last place in Cambridge, so is happy to show (off?) his true colours...

Which leads me nicely into... nobber. Well put, Claire.

Can he not even read Wikipedia? "Vehicle excise duty was ring-fenced for road construction and was paid directly into a special Road Fund from 1920 until 1937 after which it was treated as general taxation. Even during this period the majority of the cost of road building and improvement came from general and local taxation due to the tax being too low for the upkeep of the roads."



P.S. Just one more time for luck: Peter Burkinshaw and cycling and Cambridge.

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

As an East Chesterton resident are you lot trying to dissuade me from voting UKIP??

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

Tony - yes Sounds like a lovely chap doesn't he?
Though knowing the driving round East Chesterton (all those lorries driving like arses along Fen Road) he may hold a popular view.

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

what a Nobber.

not you Pale Rider but him "Peter Burkinshaw"

how to throw an election before you get to the poles.

well he has lost my protest vote for a start!

PS nice disclamer.

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

I don't think Mr Burkinshaw is after votes from Poles is he?

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

No, but you know the history of invading Poland...

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

I think UKIP have got quiet a lot of attention: 3 very long pages:

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?


I saw on the Ballot paper that UKIP man is from Union Lane. Your surname 's not Burkinshaw is it?

Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

Did Nobber get elected? I see from the Beeb that UKIP gained a bunch of seats in Cambridge but I can't find a detailed breakdown.

Jesus fucking christ. I know politicians are often not the noblest specimens of humanity but to vote for a retard like that...

It's just as sad beyond the wall. Some of Salmond's mob make Nobber look positively gifted. If Jockland does declare UDI I may well be looking to come back!


Re: Thinking of voting UKIP?

Thankfully nobber came 3rd with 8.8% of the votes.
Lib dem got the vote.
