Just enought to change a tire and do simple repairs since I am not really that mechanically inclined. Timoyz and Mr. Rack are really the ones with all the tools now. Tim even has a workbench in his Ogio vest.Did he add all these tools since the last time he and I rode together...
Let the flaming begin. I personally hate camelbacks (or anything on my back when I ride), but hydration is critical especially when it is warm. I have a pack on my back fender that holds three 17 oz water bottles. That is sufficient for most cooler weather rides. But if it is hot, that doesn't cut it. You will definitely need something James. But temps will be pleasant and might be even cold for TDay week.
Over labor day weekend (temps in the low 100's), I hydrated before but was still cotton mouthed after only 5-10 minutes. In the winter, I might not even go thru more than one bottle in a 2 hour ride. Hope this helps.
BTW, a mile from camp is more like it.
M.U.L.E camlbak' are the best if you ask me cuz you can use them for many things, I've had one for years and am due for another. I say get the one with the biggest bladder you can cuz you can always under fill it if neeed be.
What do you consider cold? 50? 40?
Good to know, I'll bring some Indiana clothes to.Even though it shouldn't be too "cold", we have seen it snow just above where we camp over Tday weekends in the past. Have even camped out there where the overnight temps have just been above 0 degrees too. Not exaggerating here either.
YupWe have even have had mornings in the 20's already, a couple weeks ago.....You had to start this huh?
