Technical Support For Bike

We recommend you have your bike fully serviced before you arrive so it is ready to go. Kuching has a number of good bike shops with a good stock of standard parts, however these shops close at 6 pm and may not have spares for more ‘exotic’ brands. There will be limited mechanical support available at the start / finish line, but not during the race. The bike technicians will have a variety of parts to sort out most common problems.
