Bike Gear (depends upon bike type)

7
The type of equipment used to carry your gear is dependent upon your bike type. If you have an adventure or hybrid style bike your best options typically center around racks and panniers, although front rack usage can be a problem if you have front suspension. Fatbikes are highly flexible campers since they can typically accomodate a rack/pannier setup OR a large seatpack combined with a frame bag and front bag rolls. Full suspension mountain bikes are typically limited to some flavor of frame bag combined with a high capacity seat bag and backpack. The trick is to determine how to carry what you need with the bike you have when starting out. Half the fun of this activity is continually tinkering with your setup.

The key with camping gear is to keep it as lightweight as possible. When looking for gear anything usually designed for backpacking typically fits the bill.

Food & Cooking
27
28
The most lightweight and easy way to go is dehydrated meals with a stove that does nothing more than boil water. A Jetboil stove boils water quickly. Long-handle spoons minimize mess and cleanup. Always remember - pack in, pack out. Canned food is heavy going in AND coming out. If you want to be adventurous search the Internet for backpacking recipes. One of my personal favorite things to do is bring an avocado, some hard cheese, and salsa packet to mix with my dehydrated chicken and rice.

Bring less than you can think you need. Bring the basics and wear things more than once. To keep things dry and compact consider packing in ziploc bags or dry bags.

Pro Tip

*
Instead of bungee cords use Rok Straps. Highly adjustable, strong and attached to your rack.
61

Water shoes are a great idea if you plan on any creek or river swimming or bathing.
