What should you bring on a Green Jersey Cycle Tour?

Booking fully supported cycle holidays are a great way to gain a memorable experience where you can really indulge your passion for adventure and cycling! 

Do you need to bring a bike?
We do have a limited number of hire bikes available if you do not want to bring your own. They cost £100 a week - when you set this off against Ryanair charging £40 each way it's good value, and you don't have to lug your steed around airports and train stations. If you wish to hire a bike please say so at the booking stage. If you leave it until one week before departure we cannot guarantee one.
What should you take along each day?
You should be able to fit most things you are likely to need into your jersey pockets and seat pack, such as a waterproof, camera, wallet, suncream and lock. Some people bring a small rucksack or have a bar bag, which should be easily detachable in case you want to stop off and look at the sites. A bar bag is probably better as you can attach your route notes to the top of it. At the beginning of the tour we will provide you with two 75cl water bottles (which are yours to keep) and our support team will be strategically positioned at points along the route with water and snacks (included). It's a good idea to bring a small bag with you to put in the van for things you may need during the day.
The remainder of your luggage (clothing etc) will be transported by a member of the Green Jersey team and will await you at various stops through the day (should you wish to change) and at your evening's destination.
