Bike Packing Gear List

My ever evolving gear list. Packing really is an exercise in OCD; what to bring, what not to bring. This is my first pass gear list for a 3 day trip, 270miles. Packs consist of Revelate Design bags and an Osprey Syncro 15. I’ll be editing this right up until its time to roll out.

Best training ride ever.

Nothing says, best training ride ever than gravel ef’n roads… 37 miles through the beautiful scenery in Sealy with 4 miles of dirt roads mixed it for kicks. Dirt roads and heavy winds will kill your average but it builds character.
