tru*Lite the creator of the tru*Lite Bike Light Set wants to continue to show the different ways of enjoying your tru*Lite Bike Light Set, with a multi part series on cycling and camping. Welcome to part 2.

In our multi part series we are talking about cycling and camping. In part 1 we discussed why someone would want to integrate cycling and camping. In part 2 we will begin to examine some of the whys and what for’s in gear selection. We will not get into too much specific detail in this article, but we will talk in more general terms.

What gear to take and how to carry it:

As in back packing the rule of thumb is “less is more”. Take the gear you need and maybe a creature comfort or two but always keep in mind your muscles will be the power that is transporting all of the weight. Also in the great outdoors you are rarely on level ground for any length of time so muscling the weight of a bicycle, gear and you up and down hills and valleys makes weight and size a major consideration.

Your gear choices will fall into 10 categories.

They are as follows:

1. Shelter 2. Sleep 3. Cooking and water 4. Clothing 5. First aid kit 6. Toiletries 7. Bike repair kit 8. Mic. personal gear 9. Bags or trailer to carry gear 10. Woods craft tools

All of the same type of gear that I use in back packing is applicable in bike camping except the bike repair kit and the tools and items you carry will be specific to the bike you choose to ride. The way you carry your gear will also be different in bike camping. Instead of a single back pack that you carry on your back you will use multiple bags that will attach to your bike either as saddle bags known as panniers. Many cyclists will also use bags attached to the handle bars and frame. Some may use a small trailer that pulls behind their bike. I will go into more details of the gear and bags used in the third article.

One last rule of thumb that I use is, the gear I select will be able to be used for multiple uses whenever possible.This helps to lighten the load you will carry by reducing the number of different pieces of gear you carry, with a few exceptions. I make sure I have extra food and multiple ways to start a fire and collect and carry water. These 3 and shelter will make a major difference in how enjoyable and safe your outdoor experience will be. Always remember this, water, shelter, and a way to start a fire, are the most vital things in a survival scenario, hence they are vital to your outdoor adventure.
