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.

Thanks Claire!

Good fun last night. Thank you.
I especially enjoyed the abuse, sarcasm and b*ll*cks that was banded about by all those in attendance.
It's good to be back!

Oh, and thanks for the lift Nick. I managed a quick lap of Nine Wells and was home and hosed by 1259am.

Happy Days!

P.S. I still have a Light & Motion Seca 800 for sale (ex-demo and never used on a bike)

Re: Thanks Claire!

Hey Mark,

Ade might be up for the light. I will ask him. Particularly as the wally has BROKEN MY LIGHT

Re: Thanks Claire!

Yep, thanks Claire - good ride and food and probably good beer. I'll ask Duncan what it was like if he can remember.

He fell asleep in my car on the way home

Aaaah. Peace!

Re: Thanks Claire!

I only fell asleep so that Tony could concentrate on his cars econometer .... Ooooooooowwwwwww.... Hang on or did I fall asleep listening to him spell oeconometer.. ( not really... Work is taking it's toll on my 73 year old body)
