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.

Anyone fancy a muddy ride to Babraham tonight?

We could ride the new sections up the Roman Road.

Not tonight. This week I are mostly being in Crete.

Me neither - saving myself (and my bike) for a trip to Swinley Forest at the weekend!

Re: The George Babraham

Not out either - haven't got the mud tyres on yet, plus saving myself for a 2up TT on sunday morning.

But a lovely night for a ride though - njoy
