I have done some searches here on the site and looked on Sheldon Brown's site and haven't been able to find anything. I would like to know what people take and what is recommended to take on longer bike rides.
I'm talking upwards of 25 miles away from your place of residence. I will probably go on rides farther than this, but I want to start out slow with the longer rides.
I don't plan on riding at night on a long ride such as this, so would you recommend a hand pump and perhaps also small tools to fix a small, noticeable flat? Also probably a phone just in case, but I'm more so referring to bicycle related tools.
