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: Over to Over

hope to make it out, got a few things to sort first though

Re: Over to Over

Thinking about it , will see how I am placed a bit later, might try to meet en route

Re: Over to Over

Hi All,

The route that I'm aiming for is:-

Coton
Madingley
Dry Drayton
Bar Hill
Lolworth
Boxworth
Conington
Fen Drayton
River Ouse (banks of, not in)
Swavesey
Over

There's a headwind to Conington, hence the use of a couple of road sections around Madingley and Dry Drayton. The alternatve is go to Hardwick and ride down the Blue Bridge route to Dry Drayton. We can have a vote.

Not planning to visit "The Chute" tonight... it's still too tough a route.

Re: Over to Over

I should also say that there may be something of a tailwind for much of the journey back.
