Equipment required

Bike – bring your own road bike, mountain bike, BMX or leisure bike.

Safety helmet – helmets must be worn to race and should be in good condition with the appropriate CE standards stickers attached.

Gloves – it is always preferable to wear gloves when racing.

Clothing – needs to be appropriate for the weather conditions and a physical activity. Warm clothing should be available for breaks between races. Ensure that clothing is not loose enough to entangle with the bike.

Food and drink – access to a drink of water or juice is always a good idea when doing physical activity; and also a small food snack, especially for afterwards when the session has been strenuous.

Clothing, helmet and bikes will be checked before the racing starts.
