If you’re anything like me, lists are your best friend and without them you’d definitely forget something? I assume you’re into lists anyway as you’ve made it this far and the title is a dead give away…

Whether you’re heading out for a bike ride to a picnic at the beach or going for a big trip to explore new grounds – it’s easy to forget the small items when packing for a trip, sometimes the big things too!

It can also be difficult to find the right balance. You don’t want to take too much stuff that it is weighing you down and becomes a struggle to ride with but you also don’t want to forget the important things. A way of avoiding taking too much is to buy things along the way, consider popping into the shop for lunch and drinks instead of carrying it all with you.
