Aside from the essentials - what do you bring on your Bikepacking journeys that you never leave home without? Playing cards, ultralight kite, ukulele, jar of peanut butter? What do you absolutely have to bring with you?
At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.
There are these shortbread cookies with chocolate frosting that are carried and most grocery stores. I never, and I mean NEVER, bikepack without them. They're a food I can eat any time and are just as delicious all mashed together as they inevitably get on a bike trip. Also my coffee grinder. Almost as important as my bike.
