I opened up the Camelbak and took a look at what I was carrying on all of my rides. I gave a little reasoning on why I was carrying what I do and hopefully it's of some value to all of you out there!
I'm just a guy in Northern California that loves riding bikes. Most of my time is spent on a mountain bike. I also own a single speed for around town and commuting. Last but not least I own a cross bike. I couldn't bring myself to buy a road bike. That was my compromise to be able to ride with the lady. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and have that blunt east coast attitude. Some people love it, some people hate it. Either way I wake up in the morning.
