A Minoura center-mount handlebar bottle cage mount is a fantastic way to carry a bottle of water for ease of access. I use either a 750ml (24oz) or a 500ml (16oz) bottle on mine. Sometimes I'll use a 710ml Powerade bottle with the cap and valve removed and a plastic tube stuck through the opening. that allows me to drink on the move without having to take a hand off the handlebar.




I too find it interesting that going for a short two or three days tour takes almost the same gear as it does for a two-weeks long tour if I'm totally self supported. The only difference is the amount of food I pack.

Short tours are a fantastic way to get to know ones locale if there are places to camp.

Thanks for sharing your images.

Cheers

I've found you can have your pie and eat it too.
