We will keep up a reasonable pace but the priority will be to stay together.

Bikes to be in good working order, any type of bike with tyres suitable for unsealed surfaces will be ok.

You must have a spare tube and a puncture kit.

It's your responsibility to check the temperature for the day and carry the appropriate amount of water, remember that too much is better than not enough.

Remember the bits:
Cash, basic tools, tube, rain gear, water, snacks, etc.
