What you bring with you is dependent on how long you plan to ride, where you will ride and if you are riding with others. For instance, if you are riding your mountain bike in a rugged environment far away from the nearest community, you should bring more supplies than if you are doing a quick road ride through your town. Still, it is always better to bring too much than not enough. Don’t forget: a prepared rider rarely has problems!
