Q&A - get prepared
What do I need to bring?
Bring your own kit or rent a bike and protection from us. You will require a modern trail bike, helmet and knee pads. Make sure you dress for the occasion. Helmet is mandatory on all tours, thin gloves and knee pads are recommended.
How do I dress?
Weather change fast in the mountains and it’s important to be prepared. Dress with layers and avoid cotton closest to your body. A warm sweater or rain jacket is practical to keep warm when we stop for breaks. Helmet is mandatory on all tours, thin gloves and knee pads are recommended.
For your feet – use sneakers with as flat sole as possible in order to get a good grip on the pedals. Basketball sneakers or similar shoes for indoor use is actually way better than trail running shoes with a rough tread pattern. Count on the shoes being wet and dirty when you get back from the tour!
