Adventure Better

"We travelled roads that none of us knew existed"

Stop riding the same routes—we challenge you to rethink your summer rides, go point-to-point and adventure better.

Six tips for big rides or little adventures

1. Fuel on nuts

Packed with protein, fibre and essential fats, nuts are a good alternative to sugary snacks. Plus they don't melt in the heat & aren't easily squashed. 

2. Make a top tube key

Note key towns and important distances, food stops, or just a list of villages. Stick the notes to your top tube to help track your progress without having to refer to your phone.

3. Get a bike packing bag

Grab Apidura or Ortlieb bag. Super lightweight & offering plenty of volume, the bags attach with Velcro straps, making light work of fitting and adjusting.

4. Flip Flops

Flip-flops are perfect footwear if you're stopping overnight. Instead of clomping about in cycling shoes or lugging a pair of trainers around, stow a pair of 'slides' in your bag.

5. Get a back up charger

Back up battery packs are available from lots of retailers. Plug it into your phone or lights, and add juice-mid ride. USB back-up chargers weigh virtually nothing and are super small, too.

6. Ride with a guide

Use online planning tools RidewithGPS.com or Komoot. Upload the route to Wahoo Roam, Wahoo's GPS computer with extended battery and inbuilt maps.

Break longer routes into two files, making it quicker to load on the device.
