If you bring
that you bike is in good working order before you
leave on tour. If you are not the most mechanically
minded we suggest that you get your bike looked at
by a professional bike mechanic. In particularly we
would suggest looking and adjusting all wheel
spokes, greasing all your bearings, checking your
brakes/gears cable, tighten all nuts and bolts,
check chain, quick release clamps, tires and put in
new inner tubes and check wheel rims are not worn.
In addition make sure the bike is well serviced and
ride it with as much care and attention as possible.
