Cam MTB - the Cambridge Mountain Bikers' Forum

  • 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.

The BIG Adventure - tonight

Please can you post here if you're intending to ride tonight so I can make sure I have enough maps etc made up.

If you don't have a partner or team yet but want to ride, just turn up as normal and something can be worked out I'm sure.

I intend to be at Brookside at about 7.15 so I can handout the checkpoint lists and maps in advance of the start time of 7.30.

Wine has been bought but I don't intend taking it on a 25 mile tour of the countryside this time...

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Team "Which way is up" will be riding. That's me & Kiwi Michael

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Hi Tony,

I'm intending to ride tonight. I'll take my chances with a team mate, preferably not a quick one......

Thanks for putting this on.


Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Norman and I are planning to be there, and ride together.

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Michael R and me are planning to ride tonight.


Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

With my usual lack of foward thinking and planning, i'm going to be out tonight.
as yet i have no team mate.
but i guess that can be sorted at the start, if there is anyone who wants to streatch their legs.

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Sorry Tony, I really wanted to come but have used up all my brownie points going away for the weekend...

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Very sorry to have to miss this.

Bizarrely have been invited out to dinner on a Thursday, and would be lynched if I didn't attend.

Have a great evening.

See you next week

Tom R

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Tom R, where is this dinner? Can we find it on an OS map?

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

100 bonus pints for Tom R at a dinner party...

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Was that a typo, or will we really be getting bonus pints if we track him down?

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

hmmm. May have been a typo. Keep your head down Robinson, d'ye hear me!!!!

Re: The BIG Adventure - tonight

Sorry to have missed this - I was hoping to be out.

Was it fun? Was it muddy? Was it dry?
