Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Even small saddle wedge packs have room left for a Park self-adhesive patch kit when filled with tube/tire levers/chain tool/Allen wrenches/master links.

You might add one so you have spares for your spare.

yep, i got that in the saddle pack. haven't used one since the 1 time i got double flats in 1 ride, my tire blew out and have a huge cut in it. so patching the tube won't help anyway.

As long as you got a cell phone, you're okay. That's assuming there's someone to call that cares.

The possible outcomes of pushing your luck: pushing your bicycle, pushing other people's buttons.
