Perfectly pack your suitcase and travel bag for your tour!
In addition to the correct equipment, packing your suitcase and Eurobike saddlebag is an important part of a successful cycle tour. However, packing for a multi-day tour is often more difficult than expected. What do you really need for a week away on the bike? The Eurobike team has summarised the essential things to put on your packing list – one for day tours and one for tours lasting a week.
Important: With a perfectly fitting helmet you will always be safe on the road. Read our tips for finding the right bike helmet here.
On your marks, get set…cycle
The most important questions first: what will the weather be like? What temperatures do you expect and how many kilometres will you cover each day?
Once these questions have been answered, you can start packing. You don’t have to worry about the size and weight of your case. Because thanks to the practical Eurobike luggage service, your suitcase is brought straight to your next hotel as you cycle.
Tip: Also consider which sights you plan to visit during the day. In churches you should always cover your knees and shoulders!
Pack in your suitcase
There is a lot to see and do on a week-long tour – so your case should be packed accordingly. What shouldn’t be missed:
- Functional underwear for the duration of your trip
- Short and long cycling shorts, depending on the weather, and also for changing
- Functional shirts, enough for the tour duration
- Casual clothes for the evening
- A warm jumper
- A light jacket
Pack in your saddle bag
In principle, you only need things in the daily stages that you just can’t live without. So what’s that then? Thanks to the well-organized stages by Eurobike, the most important things are arranged by the team – such as the route, stops and points of interest. Everything else goes in the saddle back. Such as documents, ID cards, e-cards, cash and smartphones etc.
By the way: thanks to the Eurobike saddle bag, your belongings are ideally stowed away and don’t take up much space.
