London to Paris Cycle: Kit list
What should you be taking? And what should be left at home? Here’s the ultimate packing list of everything you’ll need to pack for your cycle.
We recommend that you plan well in advance and prioritise your requirements for the trip.
This allows you to make the most of your challenge and the time and money you have invested in it. Make a list of things you must attend to within a certain time frame before departure and strike them off once they are done.
Give priority to the most important aspects affecting your participation on the trip, for example; your footwear, wet weather gear, buying a new camera and obtaining a new passport.
Check what gear you own already
Sort fully through what gear you have and make a pile of what is definitely suitable and in good condition. Make a list of ‘must haves’ and ‘like to haves’ when it comes to gear so that you do not become confused when shopping in the variety of outdoor shops.
Buy the 'must haves' before 'like to have' and think of your future needs when making a sizeable purchase of gear.
