Gear

  • Standard bike (mandatory, no motor/electronics)
  • Cue sheets (mandatory)
  • Mobile phone (mandatory)
  • Front handlebar light or helmet/head lamp (mandatory). Helpful to have both on turns when bike and head are not pointed the same way although most turns on this course are not sharp.
  • Rear flashing light (mandatory)
  • Wide tires. 700x40c or 42c or more is what we suggest due to sandy sections. 2″ or more for mountain bikes. For mid- to back-of-the-packers, keep in mind that some roads will be chewed up and made looser by the hundreds of bikers in front of you.
  • Spare tube(s). For longer events carry at least two tubes – throw one in for tubeless if you have a gash.
  • Pump / inflation device / CO2 cartridges
  • Tubeless tire sealant
  • Multi-tool or allen keys such as a 4mm, 5mm and 6mm. A multi-tool with a chainbreaker and spare chain link are useful items to have
  • Tire levers
  • Something to make a tire boot (seal a tire gash). Park Tool offer a boot product; alternatively, wrappers from energy bars or even money
  • Extra derailleur hanger?
  • Duct/gorilla tape. Wrap around bike part or popsicle stick
  • Some zip ties for emergency repairs
