Ride Preparation

PREPARATION CHECKLIST

  • If you haven’t ridden your bike for a while, ensure you book it in for a service before you start your 30 for 30 challenge. Like your car, your bike runs much better and is more enjoyable to ride if it is properly maintained.
  • If you haven’t been physically active for a while, it is advisable to consult your doctor before commencing any ongoing physical activity. 
  • Make sure you download and print your virtual rider plate (emailed to you prior to the beginning of June) so that people know you are riding to fight MS in the month of June. Be sure to capture images and share on facebook and your fundraising page so your friends, family and colleagues can see you taking on your challenge. 
  • It’s important to do a light warm up before you begin any ride and stretch after it. This is crucial to being able to get back on your bike the following day to continue your challenge and reach your goal. 
  • If you're riding outdoors, be sure to wear sunscreen, even if it’s cloudy. Going with friends? Remember to adhere to Government regulations in regards to COVID-19. 
  • Take your helmet, pump, spare tube, small tool kit and water bottle with you and be prepared for all weather conditions. 
  • Drink plenty of fluids before, during and after each ride.
  • Check your tyres and brakes before starting each ride. 
  • Remember the road rules and enjoy yourself!
