How to pack for the GAP trip

Written by Mila Sanina on .

And... we are ready to roll. It's 6a, the bus is leaving from Pittsburgh to DC at 8a.

When you are going on a long trip, especially if it's a cycling trip, pack lightly but be sure to bring along the essentials. 

I am not riding with the Point Made team for seven days, so that was not a challenge. But their guide provided detailed instruction on what to bring along. 

Suggested Basic Bicycle Equipment: Helmet, comfortable saddle, bike lock, spare tube, patch kit, headlight, pump, bell or whistle. For more information, go here.
