If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.

Bike maintenance.

Give your bike a checkover, if you're not sure how to do major things yourself, keep it regularly serviced by a mechanic..
  • ​​Check operation of controls, switches, mirrors, lights and indicators.

  • Check chain, sprockets, brake pads and levers.

  • Check over all fasteners.

  • Check all fluid levels and check for leaks.

  • Tyre condition and pressures.

  • Check suspension and don't overload the bike.

What to take.

Some basic essentials to carry.​
  • Current licence, registration and insurance info.

  • ICE information and if you carry any medications, let the lead/sweep riders or others in your group know where it is.

  • Tools for your bike

  • Spare tube(s), levers, puncture repair kit and pump.

  • Spark plug and spanner, (double check you have it)

  • Tow strap
