At all our events, riders are able to hire a Garmin 200, 510 or 810 GPS unit to test out, completely free of charge thanks to our fantastic sponsors.
The unit will come ready loaded with the route of the day, so you can experience the technology at its very best over your ride.
To borrow a unit, simply email rideit@evanscycles.com, with the attached spreadsheet, and the computer will be ready and waiting for you when you sign up*.
NB: The deadline for bookings is 6pm on the Thursday before the event. Any requests after this will not be processed.

Units Available

All Garmin GPS computers will provide you with the stats for your ride whilst you’re on the go, including your average speed, current speed, distance travelled, elevation, calories burned and how long you’ve been riding for, then they have their own special features:
This little unit gives you all the basic stats you might want, tracking time, distance, speed, location and calories burned. AutoPause means that the timer will stop as you do, if you set it up to do so, and you can set alerts for distance, time or calories if you’re heading for a goal.
The new Edge 510 is a compact, touchscreen GPS bike computer that tracks advanced performance metrics and offers connected features through your smartphone (when paired with your compatible Android or Apple device).  It is a robust, water-resistant yet compact and lightweight device with a bring, high resolution, sunlight readable screen with touchscreen display designed especially for riding. The new Edge 510 from Garmin: today’s record is tomorrow’s motivation.
The new Edge 810 is the complete touchscreen GPS bike computer, with maps, navigation and advanced performance monitoring, that offers connected features through your smartphone (when paired with your compatible Android or Apple device). Compatible with heart rate, speed/cadence and power (when paired with any third-party ANT+ power meter). This dedicated device gives you a dynamic ride experience, allowing you to connect with the social world and share and receive rides, courses and workouts, all from the road.
Once you've completed your ride, we can upload your information to Garmin Connect where you can view your stats displayed online. The features available will vary, but you’ll be able to see your journey on a map and speed, distance and elevation displayed, as well as heart rate if you took a 510 or 810 and used a monitor.
*Unit numbers are limited. If we are unable to provide a Garmin, you will be informed before the event. Sign up early to avoid disappointment.
