What should I bring?

Many people ask what clothing and equipment to bring with them on their biking trip. We recommend the following -


  • Light windproof / waterproof jacket
  • Riding gloves, full finger are a good idea
  • Normal riding shorts and top
  • In the winter you might want a light base layer for when you are riding at altitude, you won't need it lower down, but above 2000m it can be chilly!


  • Knee pads are recommended, especially for the Enduro / AM trips
  • Elbow pads are also a good idea
  • A good helmet. Helmet use is mandatory, no helmet, no ride. We also have helmets available to use FOC
  • Eye protection
  • And I say it again.....Gloves. Gravel rash on the hands is never a good feeling!

In addition it is a good idea to have plenty of sun screen and water with you on your ride. If hiring a bike from us, some have a bottle cage, but others do not. It depends on the frame design and whether a bottle cage fits or not.
