Firstly you don’t need to go out and spend lots of money on expensive kit. It is good however to have a decent waterproof (especially in Wales!) and a decent helmet. You can wear trainers or old walking boots/shoes and use a small backpack for carrying food and drink. It’s good to have gloves and some warm layers, sometimes we will be out on the hills and even in summer the temperature can drop.
We carry bike tools, first aid kits and group shelters so you only need to bring what you need for the day. It is helpful to have spare inner tubes that fit your bike. If you are hiring then we provide these.
