EquipmentGood equipment is essential. That doesn't mean that you have to own a whole clothing shop to go on a tour.
This is what we recomend you bring along:
-A good helmet that fits and is no more than five years old
-Boots that protect the ankles
-Long trouses appropriate for the climate
-A jacket that will keep you warm
-Waterproof clothes on tours where it may rain
-On off-road tours also protection in jacket and trousers, back-protection and sturdy boots.
The rest is really up to you depending on the level of comfort you wish. If there are a support vehicle it will take care of your lugage. How ever we recommend you travel light. Lots of luggage take up physical and mental space.
Bring a wellserviced bike, a little of tools, spareparts etc.
