You will need a well-maintained and road-worthy road bike to join club spins, and you should have a reasonable level of competence to deal with basic and common mechanicals on the road (eg. punctures). We would strongly recommend having your bike serviced before first joining club spins to help ensure the roadworthiness of your bike and to increase your confidence on, and enjoyment of, club spins.
You will need a good quality helmet (no helmet, no spin), rear lights and a basic repair kit. During the winter, rear mudguards are required for all members. You will also need an appropriate water bottle (bidon) to keep yourself hydrated on the road, and we always recommend bringing some food as well (bars, snacks etc).
