Gear list for a world trip by bicycle


Once, we started a world trip by bicycle without any experience. We bought second-hand bicycles, second-hand panniers, a tent and left on an indefinite journey. We soon learned to pack our bags and sent home unnecessary items. Three years later we can pack our panniers with our eyes closed. We do not lose anything, because if there is a gap, we know what is missing. Over the years we have changed a number of things, but the bikes and the bags are still the same as when we left Amsterdam. Our bicycles weigh around 16 kilograms, but including the bicycle panniers and all our gear, we have about 45 kilograms.

Every world cyclist we encountered has its own pack list with its own favourites. The packing list below works for us, but can be completely different for another cyclist. We have a lot of camera equipment with us because we love photography. Other cyclists carry a guitar, others have more repair equipment or opt for comfortable camping seats. For example, we only provide basic material to make quick repairs en route. For example, we can replace brake cables, repair tires and replace a spoke if necessary. But we do not have the right tools for problems with the bracket or the wheel bearings.
 
Our bicycle touring pack list is more extensive than our pack list for a hiking trip . You can take more with you on the bike and you also need more, such as spare tires and a helmet. On our world trip by bicycle we are prepared for a warm and cold climates, so we have both summer and winter clothing in our bags. In addition, we carry a laptop and a hard disk in our bicycle bags, have more camera gear, a bigger tent and we have empty backpacks on the back so that we can go hiking. If you go on a shorter cycling trip, you can better tailor the packing list to the climate.
