Start early; Don't wait until the night before you leave.  We pack everything (yes, everything except your tent and bike) in totes.  This makes it much easier to pack and stack totes in the SAG trailers.  Remember, you are responsible to keep track of your gear, unload it from the trailer, and load it back up in the morning.  Be sure your name is on your tent, camp chair, and totes.  We have listed some items below, however you are responsible for making sure you pack what you will need during the trip.

Packing your gear

The perfect tote!

Camping Gear


Plastic mat for under tent

Camp chair



Clothes line

Sleeping gear

Rubber hammer to drive stakes

Extension cord


Sometimes we find a laundry facility, sometimes we don't.  You will need bike shorts and jerseys for riding.  Only a few changes of clothes for sitting around camp are necessary.  Sweatshirts are great for the evening and sleeping.   An extra pair of shoes is nice in case your first pair gets wet.  Rain jacket too!

Bike Stuff

Bike bag to stow things while riding your bike

Bike lights



Water bottles


Bike tool

Extra tire and tube

Hand sanitizer

Snacks for riding

Drinks for riding

Personal Items

 Although we can not know all your personal items.  Here are a few commonly forgotten items:  Bath towel, shampoo, tooth brush, medications, comb, hair dryer,  charging cords for phone

Other stuff

Pack light.  Remember you have to load, unload, and have room in your tent for your stuff.  You don't need the kitchen sink!
