    Head torch.

    Here’s what I was taking for a night or two this winter.

    A bit of additional clothing and maybe a couple of extra spares and/or tools shared between you?

    It’s up to 69 pages now so you’ll need a fresh mug of tea but here is everything you want to know!

    ahhh this is great. We’re sorted on the bike spares/prep side of things. It’s just those little extras, knowing what others take on their trips can be very helpful indeed!

    it’s good to see all the little extras, such as chargers, flasks, etc.

    besides the lightweight tent (sorted), cooking stove and pan (sorted) and sleeping bag, what else should i be taking for a 2week bike tour of the baltics?

    -sharp knife?

    We’ll be stopping off at the occaisional hostel for comfy beds and cheap beer. 😀


    Also think about the other side of the coin.

    Not what you need, but what you can leave behind. Its very easy to end up taking the kitchen sink, but remember the more stuff you take the heavier your bike will be and the less fun you’ll have.

    Depends on your personal comfort/weight ratio

    I’d say you need something to;
    sleep in
    sleep on
    sleep under
    help you find where you need to go
    help you remember the trip once your old
    keep you fed and watered
