Travel, but travel with responsibility

Packing list for a long bicycle tour

Imagine, you are planning a long tour by bicycle. What would you pack?

It´s indeed not an easy decision – especially, if you are a beginner. If you pack too many things, that you probably won´t need, the bicycle will be very heavy and hence uncomfortable to travel, but if you pack too little, you are suffering, because you forgot things, that may be important and useful.

In order to support you with your choices, I created a packing list for a long bicycle tour that is based and inspired on my own experiences.

For example my tour from Copenhagen to Oslo, or earlier, from Berlin to Leipzig, gave me a lot of packing experience. My recommendations are based on products that I use, and that have been already successfully proven!

If you buy the products by clicking on the links below, I will receive a little commission, with which I am financing my blog :)

With the following packing list for a long bicycle tour, I am sure, you are pretty well prepared for any tour, that takes longer than one day :) If you think, something should be added, please don´t hesitate to contact me or write a comment!
