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.

L'homme vert 22/11

Hello!

Who is brave enough to tackle the post Angus carnage inflicted upon the trails of Cambridgeshire? Tyre choice will be critical! I am going with round ones.

Will dig out the mudguard

Don't tell me you still have round tyres?

Re: L'homme vert 22/11

Speak English please so we know what you are banging on about !

Yep I am coming out with my square, latex filled wooden wheels

Re: L'homme vert 22/11

I'd like to be out. Might just ride to the pub though.

Re: L'homme vert 22/11

Im intending to ride, hoping that the balmy temperature and drying wind will have cleared any residual moisture from the trails.

Re: L'homme vert 22/11

I am planning on being out tonight after 2 flat tyres from Thursday last week, so inflated tyres hopefully for me this week I am on call for this Thursday and next Tuesday so won't be out for a while after tonight

Re: L'homme vert 22/11

Yes I'm planning to be out and will have tyres on my bicycle

Re: L'homme vert 22/11

Pray tell, what tyres was one using the day of last ride?
