Jamboree Preparation.

ladies and gentlemen, SP Jamboree is just 3 weeks away. Have we check our preparation list. This time around we are going to go through the checklist.
1. You need a specific purpose bicycle.
Hardtail MTBFull Suspension MTB

Tire selection : make sure we use the right set of tire. Don't bring your MTB with the Road tyre,..... You'll die trying.
Fork and shock pressure : Check for the right PSI and pump it the nite before. Do some trial cycling to get the right pressure.
Braking Power : Check your brake pad. If you think adding some mineral oil or DOT 4 please do so. Its gonna be slippery this coming august. No brake means you might end up on the ground.
Drivetrain : Go for a service if necessary. Shifting is important. We don't want any chain hopping while shifting ...... its dangerous.

2. Helmet is always a MUST.
make sure the size fits your head.

3. MTB / Studded Shoe
Attention! Try to avoid flat sole shoe with no grip.
We are talking about Off road not on road

4. Suitable attire
Some prefer cycling jerseys, some others might have some other preferrence. Whatever it is make sure your ride is not affected by it.
a. Jersey
b. Cycling shorts. / padded shorts.

c. Gloves

5. Hydration Pack.
We don't want anybody to pass out due to dehydration or starvation.
It can also place mini first aid kit, repairing tools, energy bars, camera, and etc.

6. First aid kit
- this is a must have list. You'll never know what will happen bro. !

7. Repairing Tools
some Allen keys, spanner, cutter, and etc.

8. It is a Jamboree not a Race
- remember not to forget all the thing listed. Jamboree is not about who reaches the finish line first. It is about meeting new friends, sharing new experiences, and etc.

The more you know, the more you know that you don't know.

Ride Safely and Intelligently!
