Everything a Bike Trip Needs (I hope)

One of the most common questions I get asked is what I brought with me on this trip. It’s a tricky balancing act choosing bike trip items. You want to be prepared, but you also don’t want to be weighed down too much. I’ve traveled by bike with big Burley trailers of over 80 pounds, but I think that would’ve been overkill for this trip. Instead, I have about 37 lbs worth of supplies.

So, what in the world am I taking on this trip with me!?

Part 2: Reducing Risk

Part 3: Shelter

Part 4: Clothing

Let me know if there’s anything crucial you think I’m missing!
