Tito Tomasi has Adventure in the Alps Down to an Art Form
here is what I rode on my fb: So here is a post about the gear and organization for a light bikepacking trip. I talk about rough trail with rocks, hike a bike and hard conditions. The bike is a Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 120 mm at the rear and I installed a 140 mm fork to have more head angle and confort. I rode the Mavic XA pro carbon wheels, 650b with Mavic tires too, using the xl casing. Transmission is 30T oval front and 46-11 back, enough. The bike is about 12.4kg but I added the water, the tool, the tube and a little luggage for tools and batteries. I installed the sleeping bag and the mattress on the handlebar. In the bag (a Mavic 25L) i take a few tools like pump, strings and tape. The clothes: two bike tshirts, one short, two chamois, one hot coat, one light wind jacket, one goretex, four pair of summer socks, one dry socks, neck warmer and a pair of gloves. Than for the night I have a very small towel, underwear and a coton t-shirt. I also take a diary, pens and watercolor kit, a knife, lighter, a camera and a gps. I take the minimum for body care and a small emergency kit with the necessary pils for infection, stomach than I have strips and tape plus the minimum for patches. In terms of organization, I like to stay free and so I love to have my gear to camp. No need for a tent because it's easy to find a shelter, but when it's ready I like to sleep in the refugios and try the local food. I buy food in the village during the day and try to stay light, riding with care to prevent a mechanical. Everyday i wash my clothes of the day so I stay clean and it's better for the other! One of the most important dimension is the map reading experience, it's important to know how to read a map and find the trap to avoid. Like a steep section, rocky section and more problem. So it's important to spend some time on the map and understand it properly, than plan the itinerary and know the options. Mountain biking in the mountains is always about choices and options, finding the best trails and the best views. So don't hesitate, take a map, get your helmet and have fun!
