Endurance ride packing list




With Asjas at the start – San Dune 2014

I found this packing list very useful over the last week before an endurance ride and put it somewhere in the house where I’m bound to see it often. Some things like batteries need charging, at one time we forgot our chairs, next time something else … so this helps to make sure all is on board when you’re leaving for your next ride. Over time you will adapt this to your specific needs for endurance rides in your country. Lekker ry!
