More than just mechanical cover for you event.

Covering many events across Kent (and sometimes beyond), we like to use the setup of our van to its maximum potential. The van was custom built to accommodate all eventualities at cycle events. High visibility warning lights & markings, traffic management equipment, first aid kits, satellite navigation & GPX mapping screens, plus a large mobile workshop / load space and capability of taking up to 2 riders and three bikes at once make the van a highly useful tool for your event.

How We operate

  • First thing in the morning well take care of tweaks, adjustments and last minute repairs for the riders. The van is full loaded with spare parts to cover most breakdowns. If you require, the van can also carry out a pre-route sweep to check route condition, look for hazards and rectify any signage issues.
  • Once all of the riders have left and are on the event, we begin the ‘sweep’. Which is working our way through the route/s looking for breakdowns or issues riders are experiencing. if any are found we can help them on the spot.
  • Throughout the event we will connect with a central control person (usually the person in charge of running the event). They will receive text updates of the vans location via a map and if required can dispatch the van to an incident any where on the route.
  • Approaching finishing time, if any riders are still on the route and you are concerned for their whereabouts we can dispatch the van once again to locate and if necessary recover the rider/s.

Pricing & availability

A full days cover for all cycle events is £260. This also includes fuel and running costs throughout the event, plus basic consumables for repairs such as cables, etc.

If your event is outside of Kent, the travel costs to and from the event are chargeable in addition.

September through to March is generally quieter and so we can usually accommodate events at short notice, usually 1+ weeks.

From April to October the service is in very high demand so we will need around 4+ weeks notice.
