No. It’s not important to own an expensive bike. What is important is your bike fits you, you are comfortable on it and you have trained on it. Also, it’s important your bicycle is in good condition. (We suggest a tune-up at one of our sponsoring bike shops – Village CycleSport or Wheel & Sprocket.) CowaLUNGa participants ride different types of bikes – road bikes, hybrid bikes, mountain bikes, recumbents and even tandems.
