ID & Credit Card: We’ll need to check your ID and credit card details when you pick up your bike (even if you book online).  Please be sure you have a government issued photo ID and a valid credit card for bike security (Debit and VISA Debit not accepted.)
Helmet: Rental helmets are included with all rentals & tours.
Eyewear: Clear riding glasses are best for the Whistler forests.  Sunglasses will do the trick also, but may be a little dark.  We have a great range of Ryders and SPY Optics in store.
Outerwear: A light jacket is handy for cold mornings or rainy days.  You’ll warm up nice and quick while riding, but best to be prepared.
Jersey: Tech, breathable jerseys are recommended to keep you comfortable on the trail.
Backpack & Tools: Small riding bags are perfect to keep the essentials in, we’re a fan of the EVOC bags for riding.  We have a limited selection of hand pumps and tools for rental use, so be sure to bring your riding tools if you’re spending a few days riding.
Gloves: Gloves are essential for comfort and grip on the bike.  We do NOT provide gloves with rentals for hygiene issues.  We have a large selection of suitable gloves in store from Fox and Giro.
Shorts: Knee length shorts are best for biking, allowing ample movement and breathability.  Refrain from wearing jeans or restricting attire.
Shoes & Pedals: We can provide pedals to suit most cycling shoes (Shimano SPD & Crankbrothers) and offer flat pedals as standard.  If you regularly ride ‘clipped in’ we suggest bringing your own pedals – to make sure the engagement is set to your liking.  If you don’t have cycling specific shoes, we will set you up with our standard flat pedals.  Be sure to wear a flat sole skate style shoe for best results.
Medication & Other essentials: Make sure to bring any medication you might need and of course; don’t forget your camera!
