Advice

There are no musts

For comfort tours you can take with you much but if you want to ride a bike fast as you pack as little as possible. Decide where the border between moderately heavy to heavy going. Avoid taking with you to the coffee maker.

Keep track of the stuff
SERVA cycle regularly and replace wear parts in time. To ride a full season without breakdowns or punctures are not impossible-if you see the problems in time.

Do not puncture
It’s bad manners to let his friends wait on you for not keeping your bike BEFORE you pull out to hoja.

Check the tires for cracks, rocks, cuts. Anything that can cause a puncture. Wash cycle.Be proactive and do not ride right over the glass shards. Or rusty nail. It is possible to avoid punctures. For several years.

Drink and eat
Drink every 15 minutes and eat something with a half-hour intervals. A good tip is to drink and eat while someone else in the group.

Money
Money is always important to have for coffee nödmat., or taxi home if the bike is catastrophic failure. Notes can also be used to cook slashed tire pages.

Pack right when you ride road
Unwrap hose, tools and tyre levers in a Saddle bag or in an empty water bottle that you put in one bottle. This works if you only use a bottle to drink from.

Keep the money, id card (or insurance cards, important if you ride abroad) and phone in a plastic bag or a waterproof case.

Mini or maxi?
Minima bar runs only with a debit card. With adhesive punkalappar can you handle several punkor. A miniverktyg with a chain switch lets you manage chain breakage.

Pack the right equipment
Unpack all of the three back pockets so distribute the equipment correctly for comfort, as suggested by waterbottlesshop, in particular water bottle, jacket, vest and tool.

In the outer pockets, place the telephone and energy food for example. Things you are easy to access. Unpack the heavily in one of the outer pockets will Jersey slip obliquely.And it looks awesome ugly out.
In the forest
Beyond the asphalt can much more happen. In the forest, you are far away from a taxi that can drive you home if you suffer a total breakdown. Stones can easily rip off a rear derailleur, or shred the tires if you’re careless.

Deck the rescuer
The most common puncture is the impact. Run smoother. If you have bad luck cut tire apart. To save a deck that has such a big hole that hose bellows out so it is important to be prepared. Tag with a piece of plastic, a piece of tandkrämstuben works well and put it between the broken tire and the tube before you pump the tire. A folded banknote also works.

Silvertejpen
The things that are not going to cook with duct tape. Wrap a few metres around the pump.

Phone
Enter the acronym ICE, In Case of Emergency, in the beginning of the name are dependents if an accident should occur. Emergency personnel looking after the ICE in your phone quickly and know what they should call. Keep the phone in a waterproof case.
