Ask many recreational cyclists what they carry with them on bike rides and you will find that beyond a phone, money, and maybe a granola bar, they often don’t have much else. But, once you have your first flat tire or other mechanical problem en route, you realize how a little planning can help make even a short ride a lot less stressful. Next time you’re heading out on the trail, spend a few minutes preparing to ensure a safe and comfortable excursion.
Even for a relatively short ride, taking the time to ensure that you have everything that you need and that your bike is in top shape, can make or break an outing. Keep this checklist accessible and review it next time you’re heading out. Over time, you’ll find ways to tailor it to your own specific needs to ensure a seamless rail-trail excursion.
