Guest Blog: Race Kit List

If you are new to bike racing this season, then sometimes the pre-race nerves mean it is hard to remember what you need to take to a race event.

One of the guys on the Wightlink Race Team @JamesEbdon has put together this great Kit List of things to take with you when you go racing:
  • Bike (in good working order!)
  • Helmet
  • Race kit (shorts, jersey etc...)
  • Cycling Shoes
  • Race Licence
  • Money (£20 should cover it)
  • Rucksack or small gym bag
  • Food
  • Water
  • Energy drink
  • Recovery drink  
  • Sunglasses
  • Leg warmers & Arm warmers
  • Tube, pump, levers
  • HR strap if you have one
  • Clothing to keep warm (jersey, gilet, winter jacket...)
If you've got any more ideas of things to take, please feel free to comment below.

Thanks Jimbo - really useful stuff!
