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.

Red Lion, Histon, Chris's Last Stand

Despite the weather, I should be out tonight. Is anyone else planning to brave the tail end of Doris?

I'll join you.

Re: Red Lion, Histon, Chris's Last Stand


So long as the wind eases off to a moderate level, I will be out, otherwise will just ride to the pub.

The ride back to Cambridge should be easy!

Actually, scratch that, still feeling rough from recent lurgy.

Not out tonight - fence down, allowing the smaller animals means of escape. Currently waiting for the wind to drop a bit so I can fix it.

Hope Chris gets a good send off

Sorry Chris,
Boy sitting whilst 'er in doors is out at Book club.
Hope all goes well for you and family, quite happy to take money off you north of the border if you feel the need.
p.s.
Do you want to buy a cheap midge base ball cap?
( I know.. but it was an issue on Bernera)
Have a great time & remember if you fancy a decent ride you know where we are.
