No One Will Be Left Behind!!!

WHAT TO BRING TO A MACC RIDE:
Part of being a good cyclist is having the tools and accessories necessary to be self-sufficient, safe, and ready to ride. Below is a general list of items to bring and a to-do list to be ready for a MACC ride.
•Helmet: Every MACC ride requires every participant to wear an ANSI approved helmet. MACC ride leaders can help you ensure a correct fit.
•Gear Bag: buy an under-seat gear bag and stock it with the basics – extra tube, tire tools, a small multi-tool, and either a mini pump or a CO2 cartridge set.
•Tire Pressure: pump your tires up before coming to the ride, or bring a floor pump that you can use in the parking lot before the ride. If you need help, MACC leaders will be there to help you learn.
•Your bike: Give it a quick inspection. Spin the wheels to make sure they aren’t rubbing. Do the gears shift accurately and easily? Does everything seem to be in order?
•Hydration/Food: Remember to bring water and maybe an energy snack (bar, gel, banana, etc).
•Optional items: The following will make your ride more enjoyable, but aren’t absolutely necessary. Cycling gloves, sunglasses, cycling shoes and clipless pedals, padded cycling shorts.
•Be on Time: MACC rides almost always leave promptly at the advertised time. Get to the start of the ride with plenty of time to get yourself and your bike ready to roll!
