Hey chaps and chapesses, when i go out riding for the day, whether it's just round the corner to the business park, or whether it's on the train i always take:

a small variety or tools, incase something bad happens (nothing has yet appart from brakes needed to be tighted)

2x bottles of Ribina you know the big 1 litre bottles you get the squash in.

A 1litre bottle of water

A spare t-shirt.

Some deodrant. to inhale when i get bored (it's really to spray on my sweaty pits)

Any snacks(crisps choc sweets ect..) that i find in my cupboard.

Some plasters for those serious injouries such as a paper cut, splinter broken spine you know the everyday ones.

My lid i only wear it when i'm actually biking not when i'm riding to the location.

Camera for the obvious reasons

Thats about it really, oh and a rucksak to carry it all in.

What do you guys all take? inform me! thanks lads! (i might be forgetting something vital)

Cheers Mike!!!

Water

puncture repair kit

pump

allen keys

money

whatever food i find in my house

a hoodie (to commit crimes in disguise :shifty: and keep me warm at the same time)

helmet

spanner for chain tensioners

spare pads

Cool, I don't have any spare pads, and i rarley have any money, i like the hoodie idea, i tend to wear mine out with me and take it off when i get too hot, i used to always take pop-tarts with me but i kinda started to get bored of them, they're a good source of energy though! ^_^ and i used to think they were scrumptious!! :rockon:

Tools are helpful for obvious reasons and some snacks are always nice while i'm not riding, Moneys good when i have some, a nice hodie is a good addition, perhaps a bottle of drink, a helmet is a definite item that stays on my head while i'm riding!!

Kind Regards

Joe wouldn't it be easier to just put wheels on your house and move that to wherever you want to ride.

How often does some of that stuff get used? especially the freewheel tool if you don't have a freewheel on your bike? i'd probably never take that much with me, it's knackering enough riding a mod more than 2 miles on it's own, i dread to think what it's like doing it with an army sack on your back (tent and all)

cheers for the responces chaps some quite interesting things..pointing no fingers -----> Joe fish <----- :-

Mike!!!

Yeah man, i was suprised at the amount people took on the fancy dress b'ham ride... It was pathetic!

I was the only one with a multi-tool when this dude broke his rim... and a pump! Lmao i often only take tools, but i have once when I went on a 2-day ride with some of my dirt jumping mates I took all of this and more! I know what you mean by putting wheels on my house, be a lot easier, and less hastle. But I prefer big bags, mine broke though! I was well bummed about that.
