Adrian and I will be touring Denmark and Northern Germany for the next two weeks for a very special event, but before we left I wanted to share a few tips for packing bikes, equipment, and clothes you can use for your next trip.
|See if you can pick out why this is a special trip|
Bring clothes that have more than one use. I'll be wearing a hiking shirt for riding. It dries quickly, packs tiny, and looks like a regular button-down off the bike when I go into restaurants and shops. Jerseys are so passé.
For packing clothes, rolling your clothes uses the least amount of space and means that you can use a smaller pannier (even less weight).
Savon-de-Marseille and hand wash your clothes in a sink. Multiple uses!
What are some tips you have for packing? Do you take any luxury items?
