My advice is to take only one on-bike shirt, only two on-bike shorts, and only one set of off-bike clothes. Figure the coldest temperature you'll need to endure outside the tent, and take only enough clothes so that if you put all of them on at the same time, you'll be fine.

If there's no rain in the forecast, you can save the weight of rain clothes, and you can probably do with only one on-bike shorts (wash them each day--they should dry by the next morning if it doesn't rain). For a two-night trip, you can cut a lot off most packing lists.
