Be prepared

10 things to take on a back country ride

Even the most experienced cyclists can encounter challenges and, when you’re a long way from the nearest road with no mobile phone coverage, it pays to be prepared. We suggest the following:

  • Spare tubes
  • Food
  • Basic toolkit
  • Emergency bag
  • Rain jacket
  • Strapping tape
  • Thermal top and leggings
  • Hat and gloves
  • Personal locator beacon
  • Camera – take time to stop and capture the epic country around you!
