CHECK your kit.





CHECK your security.

  • Personal ID/Money – You should carry your ID, money and emergency contact details in a ziplock bag. Always tell someone where you are going and when you should be back.
  • Cable bike lock

    A bike lock – will you be stopping and leaving your bike at any point?

  • Registration/Photo – We recommend that you have a photo of your bike and its registration number incase of theft. This gives you peace of mind when dealing with the police or your insurance company


CHECK your water/food.

  • Do you have enough for everyone? We recommend 2 x 750ml bottles for any rides over an hour. Try a camel pack for any long rides.
  • Food is personal, munch on bananas, protein bars, scroggin, chocolate.


CHECK the weather.

  • Wear clothes that match the environment you are riding in.
  • Consider sunscreen and sunglasses for hot weather
  • Consider sweatshirt, thermal, rain jacket, gloves, beanie for cold day
