The route also allows for riders to turn off at different points to head for home, if you plan to do this please let the TEC know. Some extra points to note for the ride – - Secure luggage, packs, racks etc (and consider spare straps, occy strap) - Garbage bags and zip lock bags are great for putting items in for waterproofing or covering your pack from rain. - Check your bike before going, brakes, tyres, lights, indicators, levels, etc unsure? Ask! - Some of us will have tools, if you have tools that fit fairings, seats etc also a good idea. - Gaffa tape(race tape), zip ties, electrical tape for any emergency repairs. - Clothing – Layer up, and be prepared, although the forecast may look great, weather in the hills can be unpredictable. - Wet weather gear, spare gloves, visor cleaner, spare socks(sounding like school camp) - Keep drinking(WATER NOT BEER) during the ride and dress correctly ie stay warm. Dehydration and being cold will increase your rate of fatigue and decrease your ability to remain alert, focussed and safe. - Insect repellent, painkillers etc that you may require, even small first aid kits are ideal. - Licence, wallet, and also a good thing to copy a licence and insurance details and leave under the seat. - A pen and sheet of paper if you need to write to your mum. As per melbourne_mick request - Can I also ask people to write down or put in their phones their Insurers phone number, road side assist number etc. and keep it with them. Also have an quick read over your Insurance Policy to know what you are covered for. Option 2 If you think your phone will survive and you are concerned about your privacy then can you all put the Emergency Contact Number under the name ICE in your phoness ICE = In Case of Emergency.
