Preparing for Your Tour

Once you have booked your tour date we will send you an email to help you prepare. We will also send you a more detailed overview of your route, refreshments options and meeting place details. You can rest assured we will check your eBike before the tour & detailed below is some additional information to help your preparation

Preparing for eBike Tours

01

What to Wear

You do not need to have specialist cycling clothing to come on one of our tours but you do need comfortable practical clothing suitable for the weather conditions that will not get caught in the eBike. Outdoor and other sports clothing is ideal. We recommend you have some sunscreen available

02

What Time to Arrive

We always suggest you arrive 30 minutes earlier than the published departure time for your tour so we can buy you a cup of coffee and walk you through the features of your tour, provide a safety briefing and demonstrate eBike usage before your adventure starts

03

Review Navigation

Once you have booked we will send you all the directions for your tour which we suggest you review and see if you have any particular questions for us before you start. We also supply you with a fully charged Bike Sat Nav with your tour pre-loaded, instructions & OS Map in case of any issues. 

04

Safety & Emergencies

eBiking is pretty safe but it is always best to be prepared and you must wear the high spec cycling helmet provided. We can also provide an optional HiViz vest. We will also give you an emergency helpline number you can call if any issues during your tour. You can also review our full Risk Assesment

What Else You Might Need

There are a few other things you might need on your tour some of which we stock & you can buy from us

  • Water Bottle​ - the water bottle cages only fit a 500ml bottle so you can either put bigger ones in the panniers or buy an Eco bottle from us (nobody really wants a used one)

  • Cycling Gloves - not essential unless you come on a colder day but padded ones make life more comfortable

  • Don't forget your camera either - there will be some great photos
