What to bring on a mountain bike ride

What you pack for a mountain bike ride is based on your preference, assessment of risk and personal style. Because Mountain Crossing rides occur in true back-country, your minimum pack should include

  • Spare inner tube(s)
  • Tire levers
  • Hand pump
  • Spare presta valve (for tubeless tires)
  • Spare chain link
  • Multi Tool
  • Zip Ties
  • Water, 1-2 liters (depending on weather)
  • High-energy food to sustain you all day
  • Cell phone, fully charged
