Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring?

If your ride includes are hiring a bike from GCR – bring the following:
Pedals, Cycle shoes, Cycling kit, Ride nutrition, Water bottle.
GCR Provide a quality road bike and helmet.
If you have your own bike and helmet – bring a puncture repair kit and pump (as well as the items listed above).

Why do I need to complete a Profile when I Login?

This enables us to tailor both the bike and ride to your requirements and it only has to be done once. By providing us with your bike size and measurements, we can fit the bike to your specifications prior to your ride.

Do I have to hire a bike?

No, if you have your own bike, have borrowed a friend’s, or have a multi-day hire bike, you can still book to join one of our group rides. For this alternative, simply select the ‘Without Bike Hire’ option when adding a ride to the cart. If you don’t have your own bike, choose the ‘With Bike Hire’ option to include a quality road bike and helmet specifically fitted to your measurements.

How far in advance do I need to book a ride?

It is best to book as early as possible, since in some cities quality bikes are limited in numbers. Our dates will show as ‘Unavailable’ once we hit maximum bike hires. There is usually no limit on numbers if you are providing your own bike. Note that you can cancel with 100% refund up to 48 hrs before a ride, to provide you with lots of flexability.
