Cycle Touring Essentials – What’s In The Bag?
Going on a bike tour? Alongside planning your route, carefully selecting your cycle touring kit is one of the most important parts of preparing for a two-wheeled adventure.
It sounds obvious, but you’ll have to carry whatever you bring so it’s worth selecting well thought out, lightweight essentials and doing away with any unnecessary items. That being said, you don’t want to find yourself in the middle of nowhere, underprepared and miserable, so be sure to include a few basics to make your journey run smoothly.
I recently penned a piece detailing the best bits of kit for a cycle touring trip, the ones that I love and wouldn’t want to leave behind. Head on over to Total Women’s Cycling to find out what makes it into my panniers when I head off on an adventure.
And stay tuned for a closer look at some of my equipment, ahead of my trip to Japan and a review of the Ortlieb Bikepacker Plus panniers and Tubus rack shown on my Charge Plug in the picture above. I’ll be making a few excursions the UK just as soon as the weather improves!
