Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Racing Tools - What Do you Bring to the Race?

I've been to a few races this year and I always feel like I don't bring enough tools.  I typically just throw in my multi-tool gizmo, pump and a spare tube into my gear bag and head to the race.

Most of my pre-race bike setup is done the night before so I feel pretty confident my bike will be 100% for race day.

But you never know, so for Spooky Cross, I actually bought some tools and stuffed them into my make shift tool bag.  I will add more tools, but to start I added, Allen wrenches, tire levers, open end wrenches, a crescent wrench, screw drivers, a patch kit and a chain breaker. 

All the tools fit well into an old canvas deposit pouch, which fits nicely into my gear bag.

I think my tool bag is a good start and I will add more as needed.  What do you bring to the race?
