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.

Re: TOBB Elsenham

Not sure if I can get to the station in time for the 18:50 train - can we do 19:21 or will that eat into pub time too much?

Re: TOBB Elsenham

Usually we start earlier for TOBB but I'm easy. Could always do two groups if people want to start later... or you could race the train to whittlesford where there are more train options

Re: TOBB Elsenham

Right change of Plan in that we are now getting the 19:21 train. I was just too keen for people to get home from work

Re: TOBB Elsenham

That train also leaves Cambridge North at 19:14 - I shall be on it.

Don't forget your face masks.
