I'm leaving at noon today for a three day cycling camping trip with some of my cycling clubmates. We are driving to a state park where camp will stay put, we'll just do different 40-50 mile loops each day. I approached it as something of a touring dry run, packing only what I would be able to carry on the bike. Did pretty well with it, too, though I do have more than I would take on a tour, like extra tools in case someone needs some maintenance and extra clothes. Hanging around with the same group for three days I just felt the need to have at least a couple of different sets of hanging around clothes. Even at that, everything would fit in two good size panniers with the tent and sleeping bag lashed to the rack. And that's with my oversized sleeping bag, which will definitely be replaced for actual touring. I'm not, however, riding my commuter/tourer since I just put together a really sweet new road bike that is begging for some miles.
