Apologies if there’s an existing thread for this, I tried to look for one but didn’t find it.
This will be my first RAGBRAI experience (very excited!), but I have a tendency to overload on stuff when I do long rides.
Here’s a rough inventory of what I’m planning to carry with me in my backpack:
– Camelbak water reservoir
– Multitool (it’s an old bike, something is bound to need tightening)
– Tire wrenches and patches
– Cooling towel
– Phone in waterproof case
– ID and cash/card in small wallet
– Bike lock
– Small first aid kit in Altoids tin
Along with this, I have a small under seat pack carrying my headlight/tail light and some zip ties.
How does this sound to you veteran riders? Anything I should add or ditch?
Thanks and see you on the route!
