Successful long-distance cyclists are self sufficient ones: to that end I’ll need a lot of gear to keep me on the road. The following immediately springs to mind but there may be a lot of chopping and changing before I get to South America:

  • Bicycle(!)
  • Panniers
  • Water bottles
  • Spare bicycle parts (nuts, bolts, chain links etc)
  • Helmet
  • Lock
  • Lubricant
  • Puncture repair kit
  • Toolkit
  • Wash kit
  • First aid kit
  • Stove & cooking/eating equipment
  • Cyclist clothing
  • Water proof clothing
  • Footwear
  • Lights – bicycle & head torch
  • Camera
  • Bicycle computer
  • Music player
  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Diary/log book
  • Maps
  • Book(s)
  • Other (!)

(Thanks to Carl-David Granbäck for inspiration).
