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.

This evening

Hi all,
Is anyone else thinking of taking the air this evening?
If Duxford is an issue we don't have to go there!?!

Re: This evening

In my opinion the Tickel is a better bet. Good choice of ales and eats. Not pricey. Has a village bar too. I am planning to be out tonight btw.

Re: This evening

Yes, I fancy a Tickell.
Anyone else care to make the plunge and commit to a ride?

Re: This evening

I will semi-commit. :-)

If work doesn't delay me, I hope to be out. Tickell Arms sounds good.

Re: This evening

I should be out. I don't mind a Tickell!

PT

Re: This evening

Okay after a lecture on committal I now realise it's the book club barbie and so I have to be back by 8.30 to look after the boy. So, going out now.
Hope to be out next week.
Have a nice ride/tickell

Re: This evening

Hard luck Duncan, but enjoy your early ride. Hoping to beat Pasty to this: I think you meant "commitment" rather than "committal" ...........

Re: This evening

Hmm, I think work has intervened, and I probably won't be out either. Damn.

Enjoy! And be sure to post lots of pics to frustrate that latex-obsessed silver surfer dude. (And me.)

Re: This evening

I may see if I can get a lift with Maria for the beer. Give me a text tom of you change venue please

Re: This evening

I'm out tonight, what about the Queen Head at Newton. Good beer and snacks. For a route what about Coton, the tunnel, Harlton Woods, Barrinton,Shepreth, Foxton then Newton.

Re: This evening

Hi Paul, are you not riding at the moment? Have I missed something? Hope it's not too serious.

Re: This evening

btw, BTW in my area of expertise (sh1thouse mechanic) stands for back to wall pan. Had to look up your version!
