Frequently Asked Questions
What type of bike do I need?
Most of the rides are suitable for all bike types. Check the ride description to check if specific bikes are more suitable for that route.
Do I need my own bike?
Yes you will need to come along to a ride with a working bike. Our ride leaders will be able to check it's in good working order. Check your brakes work and your tyres are pumped up before you set off!
Do I have to pay?
The rides are free of charge.
How do I know if the ride is right for me?
Distances will vary but check the ride description. It will be a leisurely pace - we won't leave anyone behind!
Will the rides be on roads?
Yes, some of the rides will be on roads. The ride description should give you an idea of the type of route you'll be riding on. Many rides will be on cycle paths and quiet roads though.
What should I wear?
Make sure you wear comfortable clothing suitable for the weather that day. It's always handy to have some waterproof clothing too.
Do I have to wear a helmet?
That's totally up to you - but if riders are under 16 then a helmet is a must.
What should I bring along?
It's best to bring a drink, snacks and some spare change for a coffee if we make a pit stop. If you have one, a spare inner tube in case of punctures will be handy too.
Can I bring children?
Yes, some of the rides will be open to children. Check the ride description to check if it's suitable. Children under 16 will need an adult riding with them.
Do I need to book a place?
It would help us to know you are coming along by booking a place. Registering is quick and easy. Don't worry if you haven't - our ride leaders can give you a form on the day if you forget.
