Your Offroad Orange Adventure is Approaching
So you’ve booked your trip to Offroad Orange Spain and now its time to get yourself ready to ride. Some of our riders compete at every event possible during the UK season. Fitness is important but the terrain here is unlike any UK enduro course.
Get Bike Time In
Most riders get out on weekends and average around 3-4 hours ride time. You might be out all day but actual ride time is surprisingly short. Spending a hour more than usual will help keep you focused all day.
Bring a hydration pack (such as USWE) or Hydration Bladder with you. We supply water and a ruck sac but being able to hydrate easily when riding is very important. Frequent stops in hot weather help but the ability to drink when you want is invaluable. Additives and gels also aid in Hydration.
Palm savers come in handy for those who suffer with blisters. Inexpensive and easy to buy make these a must if avoiding hand pain is on your agenda.
Sit or Stand – Friction can be a bitch
This is a question we get asked by so many. Its personal preference but if you stand then bike control is easier for most of us. If you sit a lot be mindful of finishing the day with the back end resembling a baboon! If thats you then don’t forget ‘Butt Cream” or what ever you use and when travelling with hand luggage only…remember the 100ml limit going through airport security.
If you ride in glasses then we do have goggles to accommodate you but sometimes its best to bring your own that you know are right for you. Same goes for unusual sized items. Always ask if your not sure.
