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.

White Horse Foxton

I plan to ride tonight.

Emily should you grace us with your presence. I can guarantee, it won't turn out to be a surprise manic dash between pubs that are miles away from each other in sub-zero conditions with a 3-hour time limit and a crazy victory-thirsty speed monster as your partner.

Well there may be some crazy victory-thirsty speed monsters in the group, but they will pretend to be normal human beings tonight.

See you later

Re: White Horse Foxton

I am planning to be out tonight. I intend to be a crazy, beer-thirsty, bimbling monster.

Re: White Horse Foxton

Trails, nettles, beer and a 9 mile ride home from the pub. Sold

Re: White Horse Foxton

I'm hoping to be on time. I'll be a crazy monster as usual, and beer might be involved, but I'm not the fast, racy kind of monster.

Re: White Horse Foxton

Hi, I would love to join you out tonight, I'm a newbie in Cambridge. Anyone got a spare light for me to borrow so I can try these evening rides out?
