After more than a year of lockdown and cancelled events, local mountain bike stage racing is about to revive.

Taking part in a stage race will see you ride your bike for anything from two to eight days in as many locations. As such, packing for the event requires a bit of careful planning to ensure that you have everything you need.

In many cases, race organisers will provide you with a bag or plastic box and this will be the only item that they transport between race villages. Packing space can be limited and you will need to repack all your items into these allocated containers before the start of the race.
