One thought on “To-Do List 0.2

  1. Think about removing items from the list that you can buy along the way if actually needed, such as tires. No use dragging along “just in case” weight, when you can just buy it if you actually need it.

    Also, develop a list of bike maintenance items to check when you pull in each night. Nothing big, just all the normal stuff. You’d be surprised how often some of the simple stuff that is taken for granted comes out to bite you in the middle of a ride.
