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.

Re: Thriplow tonight?

Can't make it unfortunately but interested to see what routes you take around Thriplow as it's near to me. Someone please post the ride to Strava!

Re: Thriplow tonight?

Much as I'd love to accompany Lord Bowes on a tour of the southern portion of his estate, I'm afraid I'm otherwise engaged.

Please don't disturb the partridges; they're due to be shot to sh1t this weekend when a few of his pals come up from town...

Have fun...

Re: Thriplow tonight?

Ok, I'm definitely riding

Chris, I'll have it on Strava. If you like it flat, straight and gravelly then you'll like the approaches to Thriplow!

Re: Thriplow tonight?

No Mike, from what I've seen, Chris likes it Hilly, very hilly.......

Re: Thriplow tonight?

I'm out tonight, waiting for the train at Ely. See you just after 7.30

Re: Thriplow tonight?

Excellent ride tonight. Brilliant weather. Hope Jon M makes it back to Ely - an ambitious ride IMO, bearin in mind the 3/4 headwind I encountered riding back. Also good to see the Bowes back in action. Anyone out tonight could tell he's been training
