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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
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:
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.
