This article is from the Bicycles FAQ, by Mike Iglesias with numerous contributions by others.
This portion deals with the equipment that I take. Note that my lists reflect
that I am doing lightweight "credit card" touring where I sleep in hotels at
night and eat food at restaurants. Some of this equipment may also be
appropriate for fully loaded touring, but that is not discussed here.
Also, since the riding clothes that you will be wearing during the day will mos
likely get washed every night, an important consideration is that they be made
of a quick drying material.
