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.

Im an undegrad at Cambridge Uni and really keen on mountain biking and you guys seem to be the best local club I can find.

Re: Newbie - ride today?

I'm hoping to be out Sam. There's been a lot of weather based moaning though so we could be light on numbers tonight

Re: Newbie - ride today?

Also planning on riding. Should be a nice evening.

Re: Newbie - ride today?

Great, I look forward to it

Re: Newbie - ride today?

Myself and my son Mike, who is 14 will be out tonight. That will keep the pace down I am afraid, just wait for us at any intersections :)
