What do you bring with you when you ride ?
A couple of days ago while chatting on our Discord Channel with other fellow readers, I was wondering what people bring on their bike rides.
It may be commute or long distance, but I wonder what guys you carry on your everyday rides ...
For me, as I only ride road bike (for now) I always bring a lot of equipment in case of puncture (from me or friends I ride with). The distance may vary from 45 to 100 km, but here is what I always have in my saddle bag.
SKS Tom 18 Multi-Tool
Vintage Michelin tire lever (they are maybe 40 years old as they were used by my dad)
Vintage Vulcavite patch box with patches, glue and sand paper
Opinel N°8 Tour de France - Special Edition
Not pictured here are water bottles, pump, cash and ID card.
And you, what are your everyday ride essentials ? Share them with us !
I do short rides mostly 1 hour to 1 and a half so I just bring my water bottle a Allen key set and lock that's it, rarely carry my patch kit and I should walked home 2 x so far
I always have some money, and really often imbus 5mm :D
