My Bikepacking Gear List

After over 4 years of bikepacking in the woods on single track and on the road I have whittled down the amount of gear that I bring to the bear minimum. I primary do most of my bike traveling on road bikes and the list of below is the basic stuff that i bring along the way. Every once and awhile I change out a few items of clothing depending on what the weather may be like on my trip. Some of the stuff will stay home depending on the route and type of travel that I’m doing.

For instance last month I rode from San Francisco to Los Angels all the way down the Pacific Coats Highway and camped all along the way, so I brought all my sleeping gear and cooking gear. This same route could be down by staying in hotels and buying meals along the way.
