Girona, Spain Bikepacking Gear List

Bikepacking gear planing is integral to having a safe trip and should be done in advanced a few weeks or months prior to departure. It’s also quite fun to see everything come together as you select the gear you need and lay everything out on a list or using computer software. Lately I’ve been using Miro for all my gear plannning, which is a a whiteboard platform that enables you to collaborate with people to effectively plan and brainstorm with ease. In the software I compartmentalize everything by breaking out what I need into buckets such as on bike clothing, first aid, food, electornics etc. I also like to include my breakdown by date in a list format which displays what I need to do from day of arrival to departure. 

My Girona, Spain trip was a lightweight, high speed bikepacking tour where I stayed lodged at local hotels off the route each day. This meant no camping was needed so I was happy to be able to leave the entire kitchen sink (excessive gear) at home. All of my gear was packed in Revelate Designs bikepacking bags which kept me agile on the bike and steady in technical section. Chime in with a comment below if you have questions about this setup. Would love to know what some of you pack for international trips.
