Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Do I need to bring a bike?
Bike hire can be provided free of charge through the Quorum Business Park pool bike scheme, however you will have to collect a bike the day before the train.
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing and shoes. A lightweight jacket may be useful in case it does rain. Helmets are not essential but are recommended and can be provided if you do not have your own.
What happens if it's raining?
No one likes getting soaked so we will try to offer some training unless the weather makes it unsafe to do so. Our instructors will always try to find a sheltered location or offer you an alternative activity in bad weather.
In the event of bad weather, the ride may be cancelled at short notice - we'll contact you to let you know if this happens.
