RIDE WHAT TO BRING 

BIKE STANDARD:
You cannot cycle 80K on a pile of junk! Make sure your bike is up to scratch and safe for the road ahead. Check your bike, breaks, wheels before you set off. If you are unsure, ask one of our mechanics.

HELMET:
Bring a helmet and get to Picnic with your noggin straight! You will not be permitted to cycle without a helmet.

PADDED CYCLING SHORTS: 
 We can’t recommend this enough for the sake of your nether regions. A little extra cushion goes a long way on the saddle.
