Tips

  • Pack light but carry essentials such as a camera, water, sunscreen and a swimsuit.
  • Bring leggings, a sweater, fleece jacket and over-pants if you’re planning a trip in spring, autumn or winter.
  • A breathable windbreaker or raincoat will offer excellent protection if there’s a sudden burst of rain.
  • Goggles and large-sized glasses will keep your eyes safe against the wind, sun and dust from passing traffic.
  • Cycle at your own pace and remember to stop, rest and eat some high energy food to avoid exhaustion.
  • Always keep an eye on the road ahead of you to avoid sudden movements or veering off the road.
  • Ask your tour guide where best to park your bike while visiting attractions.
  • Keep your distance whilst cycling, do not tailgate the cyclist ahead of you. Follow closely only if your group is experienced in pack riding or if advised.
