Sea of Galilee – Gear



My setup was to get out on the first outing using what I had lying around without having to buy too much stuff. Having invested in the Apidura seatbag and handlebar bag I wanted to get out there and start making changes based on experiences out in nature. Due to space concerns I had to take a back pack so you can see what I was basically carrying on me and not on the bike below

  • Bladder 215g (Filled 2000-3000g)
  • Helmet 312g
  • Shoes 850g
  • Gloves 38g
  • Bib 154g
  • Vest 107g
  • Jersey 148g
  • Long Top 273g
  • Socks 41g x2

  • Bottles 1l 105g x2
  • Water 2000g
  • Tent Poles 963g

So as you can see this is not lightweight setup at all but rather just getting out there. I’ve already highlighted a few things that I will definitely start taking weight off. The sleeping setup is my first concern and also obviously stuff that I took that wasn’t really needed, such as a the leatherman and extra un-used clothing. The jacket could really get slimmed down.
