Cam MTB - the Cambridge Mountain Bikers' Forum

Click on the "return to website" button to see our new website with loads more details of who we are, where and when we ride and much more.



  • 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.

Bravenet Subs

Hi All,

Something that I should have collected a while ago is contributions to cover subs for the website and forum.

In October I paid £82.05 annual fees to Bravenet. Can I get some contributions from you all, please?

I think that £3 each from the regulars should cover it. I'll be out next Thursday when I'm expecting you all to be wadded to cover the curry so stick a few more quid in for poor old Pasty, please.



Re: Bravenet Subs

Sadly I won't be out next Thursday due to international gallivanting so whoever eats my poppadoms please give Pasty £3.

Re: Bravenet Subs

I was thinking of giving you A. the steam off my piss But have decided on B. £6.00 of whole english poundiness. Extract it from me when we both doeth meet next.

Re: Bravenet Subs

Ah takes me back! I remember wheedling pound coins out of the "membership" when I was the webmaster several years back.

Glad to see things look much the same as ever. Although I prefer the riding up in Jockland (I really don't miss the clay winter mud of Cambs and the Right to Roam trail access here is fantastic), I've never managed to find anything like the same quality of pub stops.

For those that remember me - the Focus carbon hard tail is still just about going, but was largely kept for gravel/adventure CX events and is now flirting with beater status. I've a Sunn full sus that's been ridden to bits and the current steed of choice is an NS trail bike. The shitty old bag (as christened by Anna Lilo) was retired a couple of years ago after it became a real liability on the downhills...

Any of the old lags on Strava? I'm in touch with Anna, Claire found me before she buggered off to the USA and I found Paul Lyons, but what about the likes of Duncan, Pasty or Pete Fenton? Is Uncle Tom still riding?

And what happened to your vague plans of a year or two ago of a CamMTB trip up to one of the Scottish trail centres? It's a long way for you lot but it'd be grand to meet up again.

Re: Bravenet Subs

Hi Paul, good to hear from you, shocked to hear that your shit bag got binned having surely survived at least one world war. Not sure that Strava thing will catch on... Will prob be up in the Lakes in May/June, in case you can manage a trip down a bit, as you say the pubs will be better than north of the border. Cheers, Pete

Re: Bravenet Subs

Hey Pete - yes, let me know when your plans are settled and I'll see if I can make it down.
