Equipment

You don’t need your own bike to take part in MEC Bikefest – come on down and chat with local vendors and community groups. Even kids will find bikes to ride at the Kids’ Bike Station.

However, for some of our clinics and all of our rides you will need to have your own bike and helmet to participate. Want to participate in a clinic or ride but don’t have your own bike? Contact us directly and we will try to find a bike to accommodate you.

MEC Bikefest happens rain or shine, so please dress for the weather. Be prepared for both warm temperatures and rain. Food and snacks will be available for purchase, or you are welcome to bring your own. And don’t forget your water bottle.
