We will happily permit any bicycle to join us for the ride! We strongly advise that you service your bike prior to the ride to make sure everything is in working order.
If you do not have a bicycle, we can facilitate bicycle hire upon request.
HELMET AND CYCLE CLOTHING
A helmet is compulsory. Without it the guides will not permit you to ride.

Cyclists should have a small hand pump to hand as a precaution.
