Have a 100 mile gravel race coming up. Curious what you guys carry for this sort of event and what you use to carry it.
Should be going past 2 gas stations along the route.
Normally for my 0-50 mile rides I carry 1 or 2 water bottles and a saddle bag with tube, co2, multi tool with chain tool, chain link, and a couple tire levers.
Ideally for 100 miles I’d like to add at least one or 2 more tubes (also in case I need to hand one out to another rider with a flat) and another 1 or 2 co2s, and a bunch of gels, or maybe kind bar, a Ziploc with some of my carb/electrolyte powder for water etc.
My bike has a downtube boss also, so I’m curious about whether I should use that and put another bottle cage and a tool keg and fill that with my extra tools and supplies.
Or I could get a top tube bag which the advantage would be that I could retrieve gels from that easily, and carry a third water bottle in the downtube boss. But thats a lot of extra weight also if I can fill my 2 water bottles at the 2 gas stations.
Any ideas or what has worked for you guys? I’ve only done one pavement century and I just carried 2 water bottles and topped off at 2 gas stations, and had no flats or problems, but it was pavement.
