We will have a limited number of premium bikes available for test riding across the weekend on a first come, first served basis. Please note these are specifically for test rides and are not a substitute for you bringing or hiring your own bike.

Re-building and dismantling your bike into a bike box is your own responsibility. LeBlanq cannot be held liable for any damage to your bike.

Please note; TT or Tri bars are not allowed for safety reasons.

CAN I HIRE A BIKE?

Yes, bike hire information will be provided in due course.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BIKE IS DELAYED?

In the rare event that your bike doesn't arrive on your flight, we will endeavour to help arrange a hire bike.  We suggest you pack your essentials for riding in your hand luggage.

WILL THERE BE A MECHANIC TO FIX MY BIKE?

We’d like you to bring your road bike in good working order, and highly recommend a bike service before attending any LeBlanq event. Our mechanics will be on hand to safety check your bike when you arrive, and should you need your bike repaired during a ride, our mechanics will aim to fix the problem. Any new parts will need to be paid for.

IS THERE BIKE SECURITY & BIKE BOX STORAGE?

Bike boxes can be kept in storage for the duration of the event, until 5:00pm on Sunday 22nd September. On the Sunday afternoon you will have access to the bike storage area to pack your bike box then you have it ready for your airport transfer or further storage.  

If you have booked extra nights at the hotel, bike and bike box storage security becomes your own responsibility, both before the event starts and after the event concludes.

WHEN DO I PICK THE DISTANCE I WANT TO RIDE?

You will be asked what distance you would like to ride as we get closer to the event.  The better you tell us about your ability, the better the ride.  On the day of arrival you’ll be informed at registration which riding group you’ll be in for the event and given a coloured wristband relevant to your group which you need to wear on the rides.

WHAT KIT DO YOU SUPPLY?

As part of your riding package you will be given LeBlanq Rapha team kit, which includes a jersey, gilet and cap plus a bidon, so please bring any additional kit you may require including two pairs of bib shorts, helmet, shoes and suitable clothing for all weather conditions. Nutrition and hydration will also be supplied for all rides.  

WHAT SHOULD I PACK?

If flying, we suggest you carry some key essentials in your hand luggage, such as your bike shoes, helmet, a change of clothes, bib shorts and essential medical supplies so your weekend is not affected in the unlucky situation that your luggage doesn't arrive. 

WHAT’S THE DRESS CODE?

Pre and post-ride dress code, is very much a home-from-home relaxed weekend vibe. Feel free to dress in loungewear. Do bring swimwear if you are brave enough for a dip in the Loch and loose clothing for the post-ride stretch.   Elegant casual for the evenings. Do bring a jacket or something warm to wear as we may host pre-dinner drinks outdoors.

WHEN ARE GPX FILES SUPPLIED?

We will provide you with the GPX of the routes for your own reference before you arrive.

Our groups vary in numbers but most groups are 10-12 riders, with a Ride Leader at the front and back.

I’D LIKE TO BRING A FRIEND OR PARTNER WHO DOESN’T RIDE. IS THAT OK?

Of course. We offer a non-riding price for guests who wish to stay with us and enjoy the non-riding elements of the weekend including dinners and chats.
