‘The Lakeland Loop Cycle Sportive’
Ensure your bike is in a roadworthy condition for the route, brakes are particularly important on the descents! Print a route card and description to bring with you, the route is well marked but this will act as a back up and also has the emergency contact numbers. Bring tools, spares and some money, there is a sweeper wagon but you need to ensure that you can get back if you should have mechanical difficulties. It is compulsory that you wear a hard shell cycling helmet (ANSI standard or similar).
