What do I need to bring for my first ride?
Here are a few items you will possibly need to bring:
1. your bike, helmet and shoes; whichever shoes you prefer to ride in.
2. spare inner tube(s), repair set with tyre levers and pump (available at the shop if required)
3. sunglasses/suncream (seasonally dependent)
-gloves or mitts
-GPS (please transfer the ride route to your device as it's always helpful to have a couple on the ride)
-money/card for cafe stop or train etc
What happens if I can’t keep up?
Our monthly open rides are no-drop policy. Everyone is welcome and we'll match riders of similar abilities. For rides organised by our members, the ride leader will advertise the average speed the group will be going, if you'd like to ride faster/slower, you can lead your own group, you only need a GPS to follow the route!
Do all rides start from Giant Store Camden?
No, our monthly open rides will usually start from the shop but our members organise weekend rides starting from anywhere in London, it's all very fluid so as long as a few want to ride a 'new route/location', you will have a plan!
