"Packing List" North America Packing List Tip by davehood

North America What to Pack: 32 reviews and 10 photos

Luggage and bags: Four panniers, with tent and sleeping bag atop the rear rack. We could carry only about three days' clothing, therefore needed to find laundromats fairly often. Take bike tools, several spare tubes, spare brake/shifter cable, and a spare (foldable) tire or two. There are long stretches without bike shops.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Plastics for rain. They serve double-duty if you camp in mosquito country.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
