Final Valley Ride Tips

Written by Dave Norton on . Posted in News

Note departure point – Sorrento Surf Club, southern car park.

Departure Time – wheels rolling at 5.00am. No we will not wait

Ride Day Tips

Hydrate well the day before the ride – water not alcohol – drink 3 – 4 bottles.

Early to bed the night before if possible

Try to carry at last 3 water bottles into the valley with you & powder for 2 more when we top up at Gidgegannup on the way home

4 to 5 food bars – just keep eating to keep your fuel/energy reserves up

Print off a copy of the map so that if you do get isolated you will be able to navigate your way out.

On this ride try to pack at least 2 spare tubes – 3 would be better. Check your pump and pack tyre levers.

Bring sunscreen lotion

Finally it goes without saying – please make sure your bike is in good condition – especially your tyres.
