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: Thursday night

Explosive gastro sounds horrendous, Norman, especially after eating a canary. Must have been 'fowl' smelling, sticky feathers everywhere.

I shall be out tonight. My 29'er has proper winter tyres on it now so may as well be used.


Re: Thursday night

Where to then ?

Re: Thursday night

Red Lion Grantchester and Plough at Fen Ditton both open until 10. Brewers in Milton apparently open to 11.00

Any other thoughts?

Re: Thursday night

Not out tonight due to my body taking part in Day seven of a serious bit of Manthrax. Hope to be out next week (if I'm still breathing)
Have a nice evening Gents!
Fucks sake Norm...50??, wouldn't of wanted your paper round:worried:

Re: Thursday night

My paper round was a fecker - Especially on Weds, when I did free papers afterwards as well.

Re: Thursday night

closing at 10 is OK....but this limits us to about 90-105 mins of riding realistically (i.e. 9 - 9:15 in the pub)

Re: Thursday night

Coton's website says 11....

Re: Thursday night

Phone Poll Results, straight from the horse's mouth:

- Brewers Milton = Depends on who's here. Offically 11:30, but we closed last night at 8:30 coz no-one was here
- Coton = About 10.
- Red Lion Histon = 11.

Re: Thursday night

Aiming to join yer'all tonight
