Packing it In

It looks pretty neat and tidy right now but it all needs to fit into that one duffel bag on my right - clothes, sleeping bag, pad, lotions, gels, tarp - and stay under that 50lb weight limit! Those Ziplock bags have been a ride-packing staple long before the TSA required them. Pack 1 with each day's ride gear makes early morning sleeping bag dressing a snap! As a bonus, you have a safe, isolated place for the hazardous waste they'll become after a long, sweaty day of riding.

Tomorrow's goal - zip the bag shut!

I can't believe it's already been a year since I was packing for our ride! I'm looking forward to your updates along the way! Have a great week, Tracy!
