I didnt see a forum to throw this in so I brought it here..
What all do you carry with you when you ride?
I ALWAYS carry: a knife, a portable tire pump, a bottle of water, and a bike pouch on the back, bottom of my seat with my wallet, ID's, cash, a matchtube that is water-tight with matches and a striker, an emergency blanket, a whistle, sunscreen, & a few power bars.
This may seem like a lot, but in reality, with this biking pouch, it all fits and theres MORE ROOM! I think this is integral in biking because you never know when or where you will or can be and you never know when you may have to build a fire, or grab a bite to eat, or God-forbid, defend yourself.
