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.

Thursday's Away Day

Three years ago we did an away day around Newport which was a decent ride with a good finish in the Coach and Horses. Anyone fancy a repeat of that this week? I can fit an extra bike and person in my car if anyone wants a lift.

Re: Thursday's Away Day

What time are you meeting in Newport?

here's a link to the route I plotted, should you want to upload it to a gadget

Re: Thursday's Away Day

Looks like a nice route, I'll take the train to get there & back.
What time did you want to set off?

Re: Thursday's Away Day

It's looking like a 7.15 meet in Newport. I plan to park near the pub, up the hill from the station

Re: Thursday's Away Day

I'll be along if I can get away from work by 6.

Re: Thursday's Away Day

Hi all,
The 18:50 train from Cambridge Arrives 19:13 in Newport, is that too late to catch you guys?
Bart what train were you planning to catch?

Sylvio.

Re: Thursday's Away Day

Hi Sylvio,
This is the train I am intending to catch, albeit at Shelford if I manage to set off in time.
Rumour has it Paul L will grace this train service with his presence as well.

Re: Thursday's Away Day

I have to skip this evening unfortunately - too much work. Poor excuse I know.

Re: Thursday's Away Day

I’ll be there at 7:30.
