What do I need to bring with me on the day?


We recommend that riders should come fully prepared for all the eventualities that may occur during the riding of a sportive. Although not exhaustive we would suggest riders bring the following items:

a roadworthy bicycle;
a helmet – you will not be able to take part without one;
suitable clothing for riding in – including wet weather gear;
water bottle, energy gels, energy drink powders;
small first aid kit ;
spare inner tubes and/or tyre repair patches;
tools such as tyre leavers, air pump, allen keys and chain tool;
spare chain links;
printed map of route and possibly applicable OS map;
mobile telephone;
money for public telephones, emergency spares parts, etc; and
money to buy food and drink at HQ or around the course.
