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.

Quick note to those planning to ride on Thursday. This week the Blue Lion is shut for decorating.

Curses! Thanks for the warning Duncan - any suggestions for an alternative? How is the 3 horseshoes at Comberton looking these days? Would be keen to try out the Barton Hoops under the new management.

Re: Hardwick this Thursday

No one out tonight? I'm not, due to a head cold which seems to be getting worse. Hopefully out next thurs if I don't attend a lecture on weather hosted by the CCC.

Re: Hardwick this Thursday


No plan B for the destination yet then? I'll be out, planning to wrap up well for the freezing conditions.

Re: Hardwick this Thursday

Not out tonight due to being in Scotland sans bicyclette. Will go to the pub though. Don't suppose I'll see you there.

ccc lecture on weather??? FFS.

Re: Hardwick this Thursday

i'm going to ride, probably slow(for me) but first time out in what feels like forever.

Re: Hardwick this Thursday

Yep I am coming out
