A:  We recommend every rider bring tools, an extra inner tube, a flat repair kit, and a pump or CO2 (along with plenty of water and nutrition).  However, just in case, the ride leaders usually carry what you need to fix mechanicals (thanks to Plum Grove Cyclery). Not mechanically inclined? That’s ok, don’t worry, because many fellow Pigs are willing to lend a hoof to get your bike rolling again. If the mechanical breakdown is catastrophic we’ll call in the cavalry to pick you up and get you back to the shop (thanks again to Plum Grove Cyclery – those guys rock!).
