Pump, check. Tubes, check. Multi-tool check. But what else? We've all got our preferences about what we take on a ride, with some taking simply the bare necessities while others pack for every eventuality.

So what are the essentials you have to have with you when you go for a ride?

Well it's generally sensible to take puncture repair kit, otherwise you could end up stranded, but how do you carry it? Saddle bag? Jersey pocket?

Do you prefer a pump or CO2 canisters? Gels or bars?

Let us know exactly what you have to take with you when you go for a ride here on the forum, or in the comments section below.
