Before attending the course please ensure your bikes are in a safe working order. A bike check can be done at the start of the session if needed and will be done at the start of every beginners course. Every rider attending any course MUST wear a certified helmet, no helmet no ride. Full face helmets are fine too. Other safety equipment such as gloves, elbow pads, knee/shin pads are not compulsory but are strongly recommended.
Please bring the appropriate clothing for a rainy day – thermals, waterproofs etc. The courses are long sessions and having the right clothing will make the day even more enjoyable. Also Hydration is key, please bring plenty of food/energy bars and water/energy drinks as the course will last a few hours.
