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.

Thursday 24th?

Anyone out tonight? I won't be back I Cambridge in time to make the start but I fancy a pint or two of Pegasus at the Tickell Arms so plan to road it there - if that's where your going.

Re: Thursday 24th?

I'll be there.

Re: Thursday 24th?

Just re-fitted my mud tyres (maxxis medusas) so if I do make it to the start, the drag of these tyres will probably mean you are waiting for me a bit longer - apologies for that!
But while on the subject of mud tyres, I've ordered bontrager mud exc for front and maxxis beaver rear. Should be testing them next thurs all being well.

Re: Thursday 24th?

i'm intending to be out

im on call all next week so wont be out then.
after that who knows, looks like i'm on call every other week or 2 weeks in 4 so maybe a lot less riding for me for a while

Re: Thursday 24th?

Yes, planning to be out tonight. Will also be collecting cash from anyone who wants to pay for their Xmas dinner.

Re: Thursday 24th?

I've been goosed. Quite often. Does that count?
