  • What to Bring?   Suggested Equipment List

    On-the-bike Clothing

    • Cycling helmet — ANSI and/or Snell approved MANDATORY!
    • Appropriate shoes — 1 pair for riding and1 pair good for walking (especially if rider is using clip –in pedals)
    • Cycling gloves – Recommended but not required
    • Cycling shorts – At least 2 pair, preferably 3 – 4 pair as it is summer (= sweat) and washing/drying is time consuming
    • Socks — Preferably synthetic (4 – 6 pair)
    • Short-sleeved shirts or jerseys – 4 – 6, again, depending on how much laundry rider is willing to do
    • Light, long-sleeved shirt for layering and sun protection – 1 should suffice, light and packable for shedding into the ride
    • Rain gear, jacket and pants

    Off-the-bike Clothing

    • Comfortable shorts – 2 – 3 pair
    • Comfortable pants (zip-off legs or rain pants could substitute) – 1 pair should do it
    • Underwear – 4 pair
    • Sandals, flip-flops, or lightweight shoes – See above
    • Wool or fleece hat – The nights/mornings do get chilly
    • Sweat shirt or light jacket – Again, the nights/mornings do get chilly
    • Swimsuit
    • Raincoat

    Miscellaneous

    • Toiletries – The usual items (tooth brush/paste, travel size shampoo and conditioner, etc…)
    • Towel
    • Lightweight lock and cable – Recommended (U-locks are good too, but limited in function)
    • Basic first-aid kit – We will have these too, but it’s a nice habit to begin instilling
    • Sunglasses – A must!
    • Flashlight/headlamp – Another must! (electric lanterns also come in handy, but not to replace flashlight)
    • Insect repellent – This is a must!
    • Sunblock – Another  must!
    • Camera/GoPro and journal – Because this is going to be EPIC, and they will want to document the experience!
    • Small backpack
    • Hammock – If rider has one. They are all the rage!
    • Book
    • Pen/Marker
    • Sports equipment – Frisbees, hacky sacs, etc… (We will have bocce and croquet)
    • Radio/iPod/MP3 player – We cannot be responsible for expensive electronics, so send at your own risk!

    Tools and Spare Parts

    • Spare tubes (and tire, if possible) – 2 tubes, because it Cuyuna and the rocks are sharp
    • Mini-pump – Recommended
    • Multi tool
    • Assorted plastic zip ties – They are the modern-day duct tape! 5 – 10 will suffice
    • Small chain lube and rag – A must!
    • Spare clipless-pedal-cleat bolts – Funny how these tend to work themselves out at the most inopportune times

    Camping

    • Sleeping bag (Down bags are warmer, weigh less, and pack smaller, but useless if wet. Synthetic bags are heavier and bulkier, but less expensive for comparable warmth and they will keep you warm even if wet.)
    • Sleeping pad (Closed-cell foam pads work well and are light, but self-inflating pads are more comfortable and packable.)
    • Tent (Lightweight, with rainfly and vestibules.)
    • Personal eating utensils (fork, spoon, cup, bowl, plate) – Working to produce minimal waste
    • Cotton sheets – Can be used independently of the sleeping bag on warm night
