Essential bike touring equipment

Be sure to pack everything with this checklist of essential bike touring equipment

Heading out on a cycling tour requires packing VERY light. But it does require some equipment. Yet it’s not always easy to know what clothing, personal care supplies and bike equipment are most essential. We’ve created a checklist to help you remember everything you need for a glitch-free tour on La Vélodyssée! 


We hope this list will be a useful guide as you pack your bike touring equipment before setting off on your La Vélodyssée tour. It’s not a comprehensive list, so feel free to adapt it to your needs. Remember that you’ll probably also have to do some shopping while touring, so if you have fabric bags, this is your opportunity to use them.

Please send us your suggestions for the bike equipment you found most useful for a successful cycling tour.
