  • Multi Tool
  • Flashing rear light and headlight (for inclement weather and night travel)

For riding your bike

  • Your helmet (it’s a must)
  • Cycling shorts / jerseys (bring a few of each so you always have a dry set)
  • Gloves
  • Cycling shoes and socks
  • Rain Gear/Jacket for inclement weather

PACKING REMINDER

On our charter you get to bring two bags with a total combined weight of no more than 50 pounds. Also, you may wish to pack in plastic bags - makes sure those things stay dry, and it makes it easy to tell what is clean! A good way to pack is to do a trial run... pack all the things you think you might need... then take out some!  If you have to drag your bag, or you can't lift it above your head, it is TOO HEAVY!!! =)
