What to bring when we do a Bike and Sail Weekends

Despite being a little chilly (what can you expect for Holidays !!) our first Bike and Sail activity break was a huge success.

For the Ride…..

  • A bike !! If following the off road routes then a mountain bike is a must. We would advise having your bike serviced but do check that the brakes, tyres, gears etc are all in good working order.
  • Cycle helmet – For your own safety this is a must !! No Lid = No Ride
  • Clothing suitable for the weather and time of year. Bright outer layers will allow you to be seen and remember you will experience a range of conditions throughout the day. Other recommended items…Padded shorts, cycle gloves, sun glasses, water proof jacket.
