  • Please bring enough water for the ride, and wear clothing appropriate for the activity and conditions, including wet weather clothing where necessary.
  • Although we do not anticipate completely running out of daylight on the ride, it may become dark towards the end – particularly if it is cloudy. Therefore please ensure that your bike has functioning front and rear lights.
  • Please bring normal equipment for dealing with typical mechanical issues, eg puncture repair/spare innertube, pump. You may also wish to carry a lock to secure your bike during the Fish and Chip stop at Swanage.
