I really should have written down everything I took with me before putting it all away, but my memory should be good enough to jot it down on the blog. I used just two rear Ortlieb Panniers on my bike, each holding 20 Litres of gear. I put my tent, sleeping bag, and “other stuff” bag on top of my back rack. I never felt like I under-packed.
3 short-sleeve cycling shirts, 1 long-sleeve shirt, 2 pairs of padded cycling shorts, 1 pair of padded cycling underwear, 5 pairs of socks, 1 pair of cycling shoes, and 1 pair of fingerless riding gloves, 1 pair of warm riding tights, 1 light rain jacket/windbreaker, 1 heavy rain jacket, and 1 pair of athletic shorts.
1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of long pants, 1 flannel shirt, 2 t-shirts, 2 pair underwear, 1 pair of warm socks, 1 pair of Toms, and 1 pair of swim shorts.
Towel, helmet, sleeping bag, tent, sleeping pad, tarp, 1 book, notebook, 2-3 spare tire tubes, patch kit, tire levers, multi-tool, vitamin C pills, Advil, and baseball glove.
I also had a lot of protein bars and energy foods from MEC packed. As well, I would buy some fruit, bagels and other food every day or so to cut back on eating at restaurants. There was a lot of eating at restaurants though.
My iphone was also with me obviously. I tried to take in a lot of the country instead of just riding and not noticing anything. I tried to share that with everyone one through this blog.
I may have forgotten some items on the list but the major stuff is there. I will make one more blog post, to talk about the ride as a whole, tomorrow.
