Slowly ticking all the boxes leading into a 2-night bike trip. Planning in advance is the fun part. I typically start with compartmentalizing my list directly from my iPhone. I used to write it down in my journal but it’s hard to beat the intuitiveness that the technology of the iPhone has to offer. I can be out and about and come up with an idea for a piece of gear and jot it down on my phone, and later return home to my desktop and see the same information.
No backpack or dangling. All gear will be packed in Revelate Designs bags and outfitted to the bike to free up my back from pain and the occasional sweaty back that often makes its way down to your shorts leaving you with swamp ass. Chime in with a comment below if you have questions about this setup. Would love to know what some of you pack for extended international trips.
