What to take?

I'm going on my first "actual" mountain bike ride later this week and I am not sure what I should bring with me "just in case". It is about 10 miles from what I have heard from guys that have ridden the course before.

I have a first aid kit with some basic stuff, a couple of water bottles, extra tubes, and a bike pump. Any other suggestions for a newbie mtb'er?

I have bent several derailleur hangers on rides, so i always have one. A masterlink and set of allen wrenches... banana or two and a camera!

Camera! Good idea, too bad my ride is getting postponed. I busted my rear brakes today on my morning ride.
