On the Bike

- Sneakers (if you don’t bring your own pedals)
- Athletic socks
- Arm/leg warmers
- Lightweight, waterproof, wind-resistant jacket or vest

|Do I Need to Bring Special Cycling Gear?
- Cycling shorts are designed to provide extra padding when spending the whole day in the saddle. You’ll be glad to have them—don’t forget the chamois cream!
- If you bring your own cycling shoes, you must bring your own pedals. If you’ve never used clip-in pedals before, we don’t recommend using them on tour.
- Arm and leg warmers are essential for cooler weather. Wear them with your short-sleeve jersey and shorts for lightweight, easy-to-pack, and effective warmth.
- Bike gloves are a preference, but are recommend for Level 3 and 4 tours. The padding in gloves can ease arm, shoulder, and joint fatigue.
