There is mechanical support on the ride, but you should always carry a spare tube that fits your bike, a patch kit, and a CO2 cartridge or mini-pump. This will ensure that if you get a flat and an event official stops to help, they can get you back on the road. Please note: CO2 cartridges are not allowed on commercial airplanes. If you are flying to Hawaii for the event and prefer a CO2 cartridge to a mini pump, please purchase one locally at one of the many bike shops in Honolulu.
