Cycling long distances means that the weather can change significantly, so it’s important that your packing includes several sets of clothing.
In addition to keeping you adequately warm and dry, they should also be comfortable and durable.
If your trip is well-planned, and you have a good idea of what to expect, it’s much easier to pack the right kind of clothing.
You can’t bring all your clothes for the entire journey, but of course, you should expect to need to buy new ones.
During the actual cycling, it’s usually not a problem to stay warm, but avoiding getting soaking wet is essential.
Good rain gear is a top priority for me
