What to carry when you take a mountain bike ride

There are numerous items you should bring with you while going mountain biking for a long day’s ride. The necessities that you should bring with you are listed below.

  1. Backpack – If you’re going long distances, you should consider bringing along a backpack. Camelbacks or mules are good options because they keep your hands free for carrying other items.
  2. Waterproof – the type that folds up into a tiny package is ideal.
  3. Water – for a lengthy bike, you’ll need at least 2 litres.
  4. Food – the ideal foods to bring with you are sandwiches and energy bars.
  5. Pump – bring a good one, as little micro pumps are a waste of time and money.
  6. Tire levers, if necessary.
  7. You’ll need two tiny inner tubes.
  8. A 3 inch long and 1 inch broad piece of medium emery paper
  9. A cut-up tube of Crest to use as a tyre boot or for pinch punctures.
  10. A carpet needle, no less.
  11. A linen thread card for mending damaged tyres.
  12. A decent chain splitter is number 12 on the list.
  13. At least two black pins are required. These should be taped on the inside of the puncture repair kit’s cover.
  14. A set of Allen wrenches (nine in all). The best style to obtain is the penknife.
  15.  A screwdriver of a tiny size.
  16.  An elastic bandage is included in the first-aid kit.
  17. Spokey’s spoke key, no. 17.
  18. A felt tip pen with a bright colour that will show up on inner tubes.
  19. I’d want to get some lunch and make a phone call.

Long mountain bike trips should be no issue if you bring the items listed above. Everything on the preceding list will serve a purpose if you only give it a chance. If you’ve ever gone mountain biking and had difficulties, you know how critical having the right equipment is.
