On the road.
Having a support vehicle on hand can make the world of difference, from carrying bike spares, food and refreshments or just having a vehicle to jump into in case of injury or bad weather.
When booking a road cycling support day with Whiterides our driver will come directly to your hotel or chalet first thing in the morning. From there you can decided to ride straight from your door or hop into the van and get dropped off at the bottom of a climb.
On the climb up any col road our driver will start off ahead of the group a few Km's in front then wait for each rider to pass. Once all have passed they repeat this process throughout the climb so that at any time a rider can ask the driver for assistance or stop to get supplies from the minibus. Therefore if any rider should have an injury or technical fault the minibus will only ever be a few km's away and can quickly reach them to assist.
