The most common question is what we need to pack and what way before we leave for a bike ride. There are a couple of essential accessories and without them we should never leave.

For shorter rides and training spins a compact sized saddle bag is perfect. Always be sure you pack the following tools and spare parts:

·         spare inner tube

·         set of tyre levers (they could make life really easy in case you need to fix a puncture)

·         multitool

·         chain breaker and quick-link that’s compatible with your chain

·         mini pump

 

The modern mini pumps can either be fitted on the frame or can be carried easily in the jerseys back pocket.  

Tip:

·         If we don’t have enough storage capacity the spare tube can be taped to the seat post easily with a piece of insulating tape

·         A few pieces of cable ties can do miracle, lot of problems can be solved by them. Always take a few pieces!

·         Always take 2-3 tyre levers. We going to need them if the tyre seats on the rim too tight!
