First things first, have a good sleep
Of course if you're on holiday around Lake Balaton or in Budapest you will explore its amazing nightlife, culture and heritage but if you want to participate on a bike tour we recommend you to sleep at least 6-8 hours before. If you go for a harder bike tour it's even more important to be fit in the morning. Hangover during a ride is definately not fun and might be dangerous as well.
Have a proper breakfast
This is gonna be your last proper meal until lunch, so fuel yourself! Slow release carbohydrates should be the focus of your breakfast as it helps to keep your blood sugar levels more stable. Avoid too much heavy fat and foods with high glycemic index. An ideal pre-ride meal could be a bowl of oatmeal with a little bit of nut butter and some fresh fruits like banana or berries.

Choose an ideal clothing
Clothing choices should be made according to the weather. Always check the weather forecast before you decide what to wear on the tour! It's a good idea to wear layers which can be removed or added as the weather conditions change. You can easily pack your stuff in our Rudy Project backpack you'll get for the bike tour - even for a simple sightsseing - from us. Especially in the spring and autumn there can be huge differences between the temperatures in the morning and during the day and you should adjust your clothing according to this. Avoid clothes which can get caught in the chain or would blow a lot in the wind, and make sure that your shoes are tightened and your shoelaces are tied properly.
Check the tour informations
When you register for one of our tours you'll get all the necessary informations you need to consider on which tour you should go.
