What should I bring?
We provide most of what is needed on tour, but here's some suggestions;
- Credit Card and ID. We'll need these to confirm the booking.
- Camera, you don't want to miss those wildlife and action shots.

- Suitable clothing. Click onto the next section!
What should I wear?
If you're unsure of what to wear, feel free to turn up early to have a browse of our fully stocked bike shop. Here's a quick list of things to wear;
- Biking shoes, or flat soled skate/basketball style shoes. Flat shoes work best as they grip to the pedal better than running shoes.
- Shorts, loose, baggy style shorts give you freedom of movement on the bike. If you choose to wear your lycra or tights, consider putting some shorts over the top. If you happen to take a tumble you don't want to be showing too much skin!
- Shirt, Synthetic sports shirts work the best. Cotton shirts tend to hold moisture and can make you colder if you sweat on the ride.
- Gloves, biking gloves are best. We sell a great range of affordable gloves in store. We do not rent these, as its more of a hygiene issue!
- Jacket, A light running or waterproof shell works best. Of course this is weather dependent.
Your guide will be on hand to help out with any clothing issues, or to stash that jacket if you don't want to be carrying it.
I have my own pedals and shoes?
You'll always be more comfortable on your own setup, pedal tension can be a very personal setting. The bikes come equipped with Flat pedals or SPD clip ins. We do not rent cycling shoes but we do sell a range of Giro mountain bike shoes and other pedals in store.
