  • 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.

Looks like another long ride home from the pub tonight. Anyone else out?

Re: Shepreth

looks out of window...

might review my options.

Sofa and whisky look attractive.

Re: Shepreth

Come on Tony, the rain might well stop by 5pm

Re: Shepreth

Will be out tonight

Re: Shepreth

Hi All,

I'll be out. The rain is due to stop and we're in for a dry evening, from the sky at least.

Tyres on the Salsa have just been changed for Nobby Nic's in anticipation of sloppier conditions - 75 ml of fresh Doc Blue in each one. What can possibly go wrong?


PS - I'm NOT riding Pat's riverside trail tonight. I would even go out of my way not to.

Re: Shepreth

Hi All

I'll be roading it to the pub - I need a steady ride and have only just got my Zesty clean from Tuesday - actually this is really to avoid riding Pat's riverside trail. Please let me know if destination changes, thanks.

Re: Shepreth

Not for me tonight, was out in the car earlier and the amount of standing water was awful, it will be a swamp out there tonight!
Hopefully next week——

Can anyone confirm the Christmas dinner date please?

Re: Shepreth

Hi Rick
Is on thurs 12th December at the Maypole

Re: Shepreth

Ta. Pete, count me in please whoever is taking the bookings.

Re: Shepreth

I believe that i've already paid for this year's Xmas dinner, Non ?

Re: Shepreth

That's right, Norman. It's "Non".
