How do you carry a spare tubular tire?
You could use any tire, but for something compact these track tubulars are a nice spare. Glue it on a spare rim with a light coat of cement and inflate it, then remove it the next day and fold it up. It will be nicely stretched and have some glue residue.
How do you carry your stuff when cycling?
You can strap things directly to it. You can buy folding metal baskets that attach to it and that you can put your purse, tote, backpack, or grocery bags in. My strong recommendation is to invest a bit more and purchase some panniers—saddle bags designed to clip to your bike rack.
How do you carry things on a bike without a rack?
Using Bags, Baskets, Straps, or a Trailer. Wear a backpack or messenger bag to carry small loads. A basic backpack is sufficient to carry light loads of items on your bike. A messenger bag hangs to one side and leaves your back uncovered, which may help you stay cooler if you’re riding on a hot day.
How do I carry groceries on a bike?
If you have a front or back rack on your bike, strapping a crate or sturdy box to it is a great option for carrying groceries. You can attach it to your rack with zip ties, rope with reliable knots, or bungee cords for a less permanent solution.

What is a rear rack on bike for?
Rear bike racks attach to the back of your bike and feature rails that you can use to secure panniers, bags, baskets, and other items. They also accommodate bungees and netting for attaching items. Without a rack, hooking a basket, pannier, or trunk bag onto your bike is incredibly difficult.
How do you take pizza on a bike without a rack?
If you don’t have a rack, balancing on your handlebars is probably your best bet, and taking it slow. You won’t be able to balance or steer as well with those boxes up there, but with care you’ll get where you’re going. I once rode a mile in traffic on my bike carrying a pizza.
How many tubes should I carry?
One inner tube is a bare necessity. Two is better still. Three might be overkill. Who knows how many times you may puncture on a ride.
How much water should you carry mountain biking?
Riders should be consuming 16-24 ounces of fluid before hitting the trail. Once you get within the two- hour window, you should start reducing how much water you are taking in, since your body won’t have as much time to absorb it before the ride,” Darren adds.
What tools do I need to carry on a mountain bike?
Tool Kit: A basic tool kit should have at least the following, tire levers, a bike-specific multitool, a few links of chain, a quicklink/masterlink, and zip-ties.
