Every successful ride starts with all the necessities
Rather than giving you a typed list of all the things you should have/pack/bring to make your century ride or race a success, I will refer you to Jed Michnowicz’s website. I made a short reference to it in my story about the Solvang century ride, but really felt that Jed deserves much more credit than that.
What I love about his site is the interactive form you get to use. Jed did almost all the work be filling the form with all the essential. All that is left for you to do is to add personal favorites (i.e. your good luck teddy bear) and then hit the print button. Out comes a neat 1 page check list by three groups:
- Ride gear items
- Bike bag gear items
- Misc. items
If you want to assure a headache free preperation for your next ride (he also has forms for triathlon and runs) make sure you head on over to Race Checklist.
This is the list I use for tomorrows Conejo Ride.
