  • Remember the essentials

    Less a question of etiquette and more an issue of preparation, remembering to bring the essentials goes on this list because there’s nothing more depressing than your chain falling off your bike miles away from civilisation with no phone reception. There’s also nothing more annoying than having to give away inner tubes to the same rider who never brings their kit.

    So every time you go out, remember to take:

    • spare inner tubes
    • tyre levers
    • pump
    • allen key
    • enough water and snacks to see you through

    A first aid kit wouldn’t go amiss either…

  • Dropping litter

    We hate to be the one to break it to you, but there’s no such thing as magical litter-picking trail pixies. That gel wrapper you just dropped on the ground? That’s not going to decompose for oh, say 500 years! You managed to carry it out here, so surely the weight of a now-empty plastic wrapper isn’t going to massively drain your energy if you carry it back to the trailhead and put it in a bin.

    The same thing applies to water bottles, punctured inner tubes, broken helmets and abandoned dreams.
