    Nah, that'd be stupid. We're on a cycling forum. Leave topics like that to the rest of the Interenet.

    Yeah great point. We should probably discuss more important topics like rock climbing, applebees, books, music, and other completely relevant points of interest to this forum. :-/

    Excuse me, but this is no place for logic and I'm going to have to ask you to remove yourself from the forum, please.

  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,320
    ugh drove past applebee's today on the way to costco and was SO MAD that kendra wouldn't stop, i took my brand new iphone and threw it out the window and then i threw her wallet and passport out and peed my pants to teach her a lesson. she better not screw up like that again. can't believe she would pull a stunt like that.
  • Bamfs01Bamfs01 Riding Level: 270

    @jerry @tvcb or whoever, any tips on route planning? Also pack lists?
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,320

    pack list is really hard because it's very dependent on when and where you're going and how comfortable you want to be.

    route planning is really hard because it's very dependent on when and where you're going and how comfortable you want to be.

    imo, bring less kitchen/cooking stuff than you think you need. just be able to boil water/fry hot dogs/cook eggs. if you're biking really really far and have access to ready to eat food, you'll realize that cooking is a pain in the ass besides eating an entire box of oatmeal when you're 30 miles outside of the next town.

    bring more bike tools and spares than you think you need, and know how to use all of that shit. if you've got a chain tool and spare links but have no idea how to use them, u dum. same with a spoke wrench. get really good at pulling your rear wheel off while your rig is fully loaded.

    other peoples gear lists that i like to use as inspiration:

    BRING CHAIN LUBE

    oh bring a handful of little bolts and nuts and shit too
  • MiguelMiguel Riding Level: 2,297
    fuck
    yes dammit
    bring chain lube

    also, a little section of race tire for a boot isnt a bad idea, otherwise super glue/dental floss/big needle
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,320
    if you're in a situation where you're bringing dental floss to sew a tire hole up, also bring shoe goo to coat the tread around the area to prevent the floss from abrading away.
  • tvcbtvcb Riding Level: 1,384
    Tenacious tape (which you may already have for tent and shelter repair) makes a good tire boot unless you like to really over inflate your tires.
  • mixtiememixtieme Riding Level: 496
    Pack less, enjoy more. It's all about limping home for me.

    Route planning is multi layerd. Where do you wanna go, then where are you going to get water? Are you going to be stopping for food & refueling. Mark all the bike shops along the route. Research the fuck out of the area- local 4 wheel boys blazing through? Read thier blogs see if they have anything concrete to say about that camp site or water source.

    Im doing a forest park shakedown with all my gear on sunday if anyone wants to tag along. Should be about 3 hours of slowish riding, perfect for chatting.
  • bouticrackabouticracka Riding Level: 305
    I need someone to give me a forest park lesson. Like how to get to the different fire lanes. I just go to the top and hit fire lane 4? I should be able to hit any of the fire lanes in forest park on a rigid karate monkey yeah?
