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.

Tomorrows ride blue ball grantchester

hi guys and gals. Was put in touch with this group via the Cambridge cycling directory. Hoping to join you on a ride tomorrow as I'm not a local and working up this way for a while. Will the ride be on regardless of weather? If not do you notify?
Many thanks Lee

Re: Tomorrows ride blue ball grantchester

Hi Lee.

I am hoping to be out tomorrow night so welcome !!

In general, people start posting about the rides mid afternoon on the day and if the weather looks bad either they talk about it or no one posts. Check this post / any others tomorrow right up until about 7pm to get the feeling of who is going. We do have some hardened regulars so unless it is blowing a gale with horizontal rain we normally have at least one or two out on a bad night.

I plan to be out if it stays dry.
