I think we have a chance to share some of the load here. For instance, you have combo chain lock as "to buy". I already have one, and it will fit around a tree and a few bikes. On the other hand, I don't have a folding spare tire, which is also a great idea. No sense all of us carrying all of the required gear, unless we just want to.But yes, you will need to carry your own whiskey flask.. ;^)
Agreed we don't all need a pump, and we have a sag for some tools etc if its that bad.
I considered that, but I also thought:A. I doubt we will always be within sight of each other. I expect we'll form subgroups, based on speed and meet up periodically thru the day.B. The time it would take for Clarence to get to us - 1/2 hour to an hour - is prime riding time that would be better spent riding if possible. I like the idea of load-sharing, but I temper that with the strong desire to not get caught needing something that's on another bike 5 miles up the road.I'll gladly help anyone who needs my theoretical extra tire, but I don't ride to work without my pump - damn sure not gonna ride to Corpus without it.Probably shared items need to be things we'll need at times when we're all together.
Also, I found a cheesy little combo lock/chain that weighs maybe 8 oz., so I'll probably bring that in any case.
In that case, since whiskey has been added, I think it's a good list. ;^)
I would suggest adding "eye drops" to your kit. It'll help keep your peepers from drying out and could be used to help wash out debris.
