Cam MTB - the Cambridge Mountain Bikers' Forum

Click on the "return to website" button to see our new website with loads more details of who we are, where and when we ride and much more.



  • 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: Short term runs list...

looks perfectly reasonable to me, but i'm giving it another convolescence miss this week. Covid brain fog (really trippy, IMHO) and weakness still. Plus it's the the horshoes in Comberton, so i'm in huff.

See told you the brain fog was yonder.

Re: Short term runs list...

I might be out with Ollie (son), but it will be a last minute decision. We have a family dinner in Cambridge expected to finish at 7pm.

Should be out on my bike this evening

Re: Short term runs list...

I'll be out.


Re: Short term runs list...

Having only started testing negative this morning, I hope to be out but will probably be guarding the rear of the CAMMTB cortege tonight.

Re: Short term runs list...

Not out tonight, as doing intervals in preparation for a 10TT on Saturday. (Roadworks on the course might scupper it)

Have a good ride all

Re: Short term runs list...

I'm out and hoping to cough the last lumps of hard phlegm from the bottom of my lungs :grimacing:

Re: Short term runs list...

Cancel that, I'm too tired for a night ride😪

Re: Short term runs list...
