Here’s a few of the cool kits we have produced for teams recently.
As the outdoor cycling season gets underway, many of us are starting to go to races, charity rides, group rides or other cycling events. Being prepared and having all of your necessary items/gear will help you have a successful and fun day.
Event day or race day often includes extra stress or anxiety for many reasons. You may want to do well or win, have a good ride, finish, keep up with your friends, set a new personal record, etc.
You may also find yourself in a new place, riding a new route, or be faced with inclement weather, etc. Being able to minimize the stress or anxiety on the big day will only help you have a better ride. For people new to events or races I recommend packing early and using a checklist.
Here is a list of what I personally pack and also a general checklist. Use both to come up with your own checklist and use it before any big ride, event, or race. Arrive with confidence that you have all you need for the big day. Next time I’ll discuss the importance of having a routine on event day.
Here are the items in my race bag:

Help us support World Bicycle Relief, an amazing charitable organization dedicated to providing access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles.
Compared to walking, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities. The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles empowers individuals, their families and their communities.
Proceeds from the cycling and triathlete apparel sold through their store will help to change lives across Africa.
Transportation in the form of a bicycle multiplies an individual’s efficiency. Bicycles improve access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity by increasing carrying capacity and accessible travel distance while decreasing the time it takes to commute to and from schools, clinics and markets.
