Riding your bike in the countryside is a fantastic way to spend the summer months with friends or family. It doesn’t need to be scary! We have some great tips for you to try.
Check the route - It’s important to check your route since the countryside is generally unfamiliar.
Be prepared to carry your bike - You’ll often find restricted sections of the path on a route like this.
Stay off private land - It’s not always easy to tell the difference between private land and public land but stay away!
Bring water - Shops are few and far between so make sure you’ve got a water bottle.
Bring snacks - This goes for food too. There won’t be many shops about on a path like this!
Pre-plan your stops - It’s important to make sure everyone knows where and when the next stop is so nobody gets lost!
Prepare for no signal - Stay together, signal might be hard to come by so GPS won’t work.
SPF for the open route - In fields and parks you won’t find much shade so make sure you’ve got your spf on!
Check the weather - You may need to bring waterproofs or maybe even a sunhat and glasses!
Lights for the night There aren’t many street lamps around so bring your lights!
Now you’re all ready to go, you’ve only got to enjoy!
