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

Jersey Pocket Organization

Hello,

I was curious to see how people organize their jersey pockets with ride essentials.
This curiousity came from browser the Rapha Racing Facebook images.
Here is an example.
Please post your pictures and details about what you carry.

That's a lot of stuff bouncing around back there.

Spares under the seat
Pump on the bike
Food in the pocket

Each bike has it's own pump & spares. Get dressed, get on & ride.

I put small items (house key, cell phone, clif bar, $10, etc) in a small nylon drawstring bag that goes in the center pocket. I put the cell phone in a small plastic bag to keep sweat or rain from getting to it. Side pockets are for lip sunblock, hankie, extra clif bar, arm/leg warmers, jacket, glove liners, etc. I use a seatbag for my toolkit.

My SO uses two small nylon drawstring bags, one has his tiny toolkit in it.

I carry nothing. I have a SAG vehicle everytime I ride, even on short jaunts...those idiots that say I can save money on gas by riding my bike are liars, I tell you!







Right pocket - nutrition (nothing for short rides)
Middle pocket - extra bottle for summer, otherwise, nothing
Left pocket - cash

Everything else go in seatbag.

I do the same except I also have a $10 bill in the bag and just deal with dirty glasses. On hot days I'll put a bottle in the middle and rearrange the other items to the outside pockets.

tools, tubes, pump go on the bike so I won't forget them and to leave more room in the pockets.

Left pocket: phone (HP veer, smallest smart phone), keys
center: clothing, using the left pocket for spillover if required
right: food, using the left pocket for spillover if required

Left- bunch of gels
Center- bandana, Clif bar(s)
Right- baggie with phone, cash, cards, car key, chapstick

Extra clothes go into center pocket, and the food gets moved to the left and bandana to the right pockets if it's a big wad o'clothing (vest and arm/knee warmers, for ex.). I don't want anything hard or sharp over my spine, just in case.

All the bikes' stuff stays on the bike: pump on frame, then tubes, tools, misc etc stuff go in the seatbag with a couple extra gels, just in case. I do not like being hungry.

I also see that most people are right handed eaters. I prefer the left hand for that, but always use my right for the bottles. Wierd, huh!

Right pocket: Co2 and rubber
Left pocket: Food/ arm warmers
Middle pocket: Soulrun Jersey wallet w/ my phone, $, tire levers and a couple tools. got it on etsy and it matches the bike. Best thing I've used for organizing stuff:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/soulrun

They'll have more up by the weekend. check this link for what my wallet looks like:
https://www.etsy.com/transaction/50173065


I also have a red wrench roll from them and it's fantastic because all my tools are in there for maximum portability. And yeah, I'm a total shill, but their stuff rocks.

I use my pockets for gear that I expect to use during the ride, with everything else (tubes, tools, phone, etc.) in my seat bag. And my pump is frame-mounted.

Typical distribution:
Left pocket - food
Center pocket - cleat covers, and any extra clothing (arm/leg warmers, vest) depending on the weather
right pocket - sunscreen, more food on longer rides

OK if you really want to know:

Saddle bag (topeak micro Caddy) 2 C02's, tube, 3 tire levers, and temporary patch kit
Left Jersey Pocket: keys and topeak micro rocket pump
Middle Jersey Pocket: iPhone in Ziploc bag and a few dollars if planning to stop for food
Right Jersey Pocket: Cliff Bar and Tums (tums helps ward off cramps, at least for me they do)

That's my typical setup for a 50-100 mile ride.

If less than 50 miles no Cliff Bar or Tums.

+1. When I jump on my bike at 6:30 a.m., I don't want to go through any thought process about pump versus C02, or how many spare tubes to take on today's ride. I just ride.
