How does vehicle support work?
On a vehicle supported trip, the guide travels in a support van. All luggage and daily equipment is transported in the van, as well as snacks and extra water for the cyclists. Pumps, tools and extra inner tubes are also transported. The van sweeps the group during the day’s cycling, and can be flagged down at any time should you require assistance. The guide will also stop at strategic points during the day to distribute water & snacks (dried fruit, bananas, M&Ms). The great advantage of having a support vehicle is that you can concentrate on cycling, leaving the logistics up to us!
