Recommended gear for our 5-day, 400 mile adventure.
Each rider will be allowed one one overnight bag (think airline "carry-on" sized) which will meet cyclists at the overnight stop. If there's anything you want during the ride (waterbottle, extra snacks, sunscreen, phone, patch kit, etc), make sure that you can attach it to your bike!
Much of the ride is warm and exposed, but there is always the possibility for rain (or even snow at higher elevations!), so make sure you're prepared for both.
Water bottle or hydration pack
Rear and front lights
Toiletries, including needed or possibly needed medication
Clothes for off-bike time and sleeping
ID and health insurance card
Small travel pillow
Bike shoes and pedals you clip into
Socks--smartwool or lightweight
3-4 jerseys (one official STK jersey will be provided)
2 padded bike shorts
Saddle bag or handlebar bag
Levers, mini pump, and patch kit (we will have flat tire repair gear in the van, but if you have them and know how to use them, you can take them on your bike for speedier repair.)
Charger for phone/accessories
Power bank/portable charger
It is strongly recommended that you collect and use these things throughout spring training. You'll want to make sure you know your gear well before we hit the road!
