On the afternoon of arrival you'll be fitted and acquainted with your bike & equipment - so you can make the most of your cycling time. You'll be riding one of our quality Lapierre hybrid bikes. We use hybrids as they have the slightly more upright riding position of a mountain bike, and so are more comfortable to ride than a road bike. This riding position, combined with tyres that are thicker than on a road bike, gives you increased stability & safety on the road.The bike's components are Shimano - easy to use, tough and reliable! Plus the 24 gears available will make any hills a little easier! All of the above mean you should be comfortable on your bike whilst getting the most from your efforts!
We will also supply you with the following bike equipment:
- A Garmin GPS - For easy to use navigation...
- A bike helmet - Good quality, light-weight and comfortable.
- An under saddle bag containing a puncture repair kit, tools and a spare inner tube. A light weight pump is also attached to the frame.
- Rear pannier bags are also available if you would like them fitted.
- A water bottle - yours to keep.
- A good quality combination lock, easily transportable as it attaches to your bike when not being used.
Best of all is the cycling set-up. Neil supplies the bikes, helmets and GPS system with a huge choice of rides in terms of length, difficulty and locations.
