What equipment do I need?

Currently we are only doing Mountain Bike rides so A bicycle capable of handling local trails is required.

Helmets are always needed when riding.

Basic repair kit. You will find everyone is very friendly and will help out whenever there are mechanical issues. But having a pump, puncture repair kit and allen keys is always good practice in case of emergencies.

At the start of the season and towards the end of the season riding lights will be needed. These need to be powerful enough to see in the dark. It's always a great idea to carry lights with you on an evening ride just in case.

Even though these aren't extreme rides, Lightweight Knee pads / Elbow pads are a good idea. They can help build confidence, or just keep vital parts from getting injured if a mishap occurres.

Where do we go riding?

There are a lot of trials we have been riding for years. Some of the trails we have been taken to by customers. We try to make sure all these trails are at a casual level of riding.
