15 essentials to pack for cycle touring

What’s in the bag? The top 15 pieces of kit you don't want to be without.

Pocket-sized tools, essential to keep you on the road

A tool kit and spares is a must when you’re travelling by bicycle. As an absolute minimum, include a pump, a multi-tool with a chainbreaker, puncture patches and glue, tyre levers, tubes and a ‘tyre boot.’

A couple of spare spokes, a few extra links of chain, handy-sized nuts and bolts and zip ties are also useful.
