Being we do only 30-40 miles per ride, I only carry enough tools to tighten anything that may come loose on the bikes (except spokes) - that's one avg type, bike multi-tool plus a 15mm box wrench on the Dual Drive equipped bikes - and an extra inner tube and tube patch kit, plus a road morph pump. I like all the bolts to be hex bolts because it makes it all simple to deal with.
However, the tool bag I carry in the car allows me to deal with a lot more, plus has better Hex wrenches, lube and specialized tools.
IMO, keeping the bikes in shape on an ongoing basis helps in minimizing problems during rides.
