I’m bringing my bike! It’s the only bike I have. It’s a Specialized Myka hybrid bike.

I bought Ortleib waterproof panniers for the rear bike. When I was shopping, I thought I was doing the camp-hotel-camp routine, so I was planning on carrying much more stuff.
I needed something to mount the panniers to, I bought a Top Peak Bike Rack:
I needed a water bottle mount, similar to this one:
There is the bike repair stuff:
My multi tool:
A spare inner tube:
Spare Shimano Cleat Screws-I’ve already used!
I will also carry some zipties and duct tape. Also the number of bike shops on or near the towpath on the section of trail that I am on.
I have another smaller bag to affix to the down bar. Being that I have a female bike, I don’t have the long pole to hang other things on. I may wear my SPI Belt to keep my money and ID in, so I don’t forget to take it with me when I hop off the bike.
Bike Lock-I will take a bike lock with me, it’s not quite a six foot long one like this I hope where I am going bike security won’t be that big of a problem. I’m not planning on stopping long on my bike tour.
Another note: my husband will be driving the SAG wagon, (support and gear) where I will meet up at the end of each day. This gives me the luxury of having spare items in the vehicle for further back up. We also attached a bike rack to the rear of the wagon to make transporting the bike to the various locations easier.
What did I miss? What did you carry for a supported daily tour?
