BEFORE YOUR TOUR

How to Prepare

  • Please arrive 5 minutes early to check in with your guide, collect your bike, use the toilet and make any required adjustments to your bike.  We have some space for a practice ride.  

  • Wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes.  Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather, it is always worthwhile to have a waterproof just in case.  Gloves are also worthwhile.

  • Bringing layers is always a good idea unless the weather is hot and sunny (yeah, right!) - we will only not ride if severe weather makes it unsafe to ride (e.g. ice, high winds etc.)

  • Bring a phone or camera to take photos of the sights along the way.

  • Wear sunscreen and/or sunglasses if it is due to be sunny (if you are lucky!).

  • We will provide some fruit and a snack. If you feel like you or your group will need more than this, then you are welcome to bring your own.

  • Please bring your own water bottle as we try to cut down on plastic consumption ( we sometimes have some spares in case you do forget).

  • If you have any medical concerns, please bring your medications with you. Guides are not certified to administer these medications, but it is important that they are aware of your health needs and will assist in any emergency.  

  • We will provide helmets, cool refurbished bikes and snacks - please bring your own water bottle (to help reduce our plastic consumption.

  • We strongly recommend using the toilets at the start of your tour (!) Whilst we have had a toilet stop on 100% of our tours thus far, we don't want you to be the first to miss out, so please, where possible, don't assume you will be able to use one when on tour.

Your Belongings

During the tour, we lock our room and you are welcome to leave a bag in the room, however, as we share the building with multiple other organizations and there are so many people passing through the building, you leave a bag at your own risk.  Similarly, as much as Glasgow is a very safe city, we would advise not displaying valuables on your ride.  Ultimately, Gallus Pedals will not be held liable for any missing or damaged items either left in our building or taken out on the bikes.
