Bring Lights, a lock, some water, a spare inner tube, tyre levers and a pump. It is worth bringing some extra layers of clothing and gloves with you as the temperature can drop after sunset and some water proofs in case of rain. It is also worth bringing a bag in case you get warm and need to remove your jacket and to store items in.

We normally stay at the destination until around 10:15 – 11:15pm. We will try and pair you up with members of the group for your return journey home were possible, as we all live in different directions. For example a number of the women riders cycle towards home together. It is fine to return back home as soon as we arrive at the destination if you need to be home earlier.
