When heading out on a weekend cycling trip it’s important to make sure you have the right equipment and accessories with you.

Consider packing the following items for your next trip:

-          Add a rear rack and panniers to allow you to pack for a couple of nights.

-          Bring along some tools in case you need to make repairs on your bike. Some tools you might want to bring include wrenches and screw drivers.

-          Bring an extra chain link and spokes.

-          Wear padded underwear for the long ride.

-          Wear comfortable shoes that will work for when you’re on the bike and off of it.

-          Pack extra clothes. Make sure you bring enough clothes to account for rain or other elements you might encounter on your ride.
