This ride is mainly carried out on cycle paths and quieter back streets. However some of the pathways are regular haunts for glass and broken bottles. Riders ought to ensure that they have plenty of spare tubes, a working pump and are familiar with changing a tyre.
This ride is quite exposed in sections in summer, so riders should ensure that they have plenty of water enroute as taps are not that available
