  • All participants must be able to ride a bike without training wheels: see pre-course skills evaluation.
  • Participants must supply their own properly fitting bike in good working condition and current, certified bike helmet. (A bike with gears is highly recommended but not required.)
  • Participants must provide their own lunch, snacks and water bottle each day.
