Bike Touring Gear List – What I'm Bringing For The Wilderness Road
Bike Touring Gear List – What I'm Bringing For The Wilderness Road
What gear did I pack for my 5 day trip in the Swedish Wilderness? How do you pack for a place with very many mosquitoes but very few supermarkets? This rundown of all my gear may bring you an idea of what to bring if you’re thinking about doing a tour in northern Sweden. But remember this is what I’M bringing, and don’t pack exactly like me. I bring a LOT of camera gear to be able to document my travels.

I think this video answers my previous questions 🤗
Hi Mike, I know this video was made a couple of years ago, but can you advise how long your tour lasted? I’m trying to determine what to bring on a tour lasting 2 to 3 weeks. ( Summer UK).
Hi Mike a good tooth paste i use is a tooth powder comes in a plastic small container saves a lot of room.
looks Epic Mike, can’t wait!
Have a nice ride mike! Waiting for those drone shots!
Tack för alla fina videos. Följer gärna med på en cykel tour när du kör med flera
I’d like to speak to you about the sawyer filter. I was not happy with mine.
Hi Mike! Nice video again. Perhaps I missed it in the video, but do you know how much all your luggage weighs? A few days ago I weighed my luggage and I was astonished that I was carrying around 35kg.
I really love the sneak preview of the Wilderness road! I think it’s probably the nice road to cycle in Sweden.
This is so cool I can’t wait to do something similar thanks for the video and advice best wishes from the US
I’m subscribed & catching up on your videos. After a US coast to coast trip I plan to check out Scandinavia. Your videos 📼 are helpful. Thanks & be safe. 👍☮️🌞🦠😷🚲
As for mosquitos, the organism gets accustomed to them after few days, and you don’t feel bites like local people. I bring some repellent like "Off" and essential oil creme like "Dr. Mom" against bites.
Why do you need to filter natural water? We always get it from springs, as the last resort from a creek and boil it.
Thank you for your good advice.
Hi Mike. Great content, and I am really looking forward to the videos from the trip! I have recently completed an eight day trip following the coastline og Sjælland in Denmark, cycling arround the island. A fantastic trip for the most part, especially following Østersøruten in the south part and Nordkyststien in the north. As you previously recommended, I completed the trip with a pair of Ortlieb back roller plus in the back and an Ortlieb ultimate 6 handlebarbag. Absolutely thrilled with the performance of all of them, thanks for the tip! I was just wondering where you found the collapsible backpack and which manufacturer it was made by. Also i would love to hear if you are happy with it. Thanks again.

Mike are you still using your G7X Mark ii
3:09 DRONE 🔥🔥🔥 Go Mike !
Thank you. The videos are very helpful.
Close to where I grew up! Really cool stuff, Mike 😀
Nice video Mike, very helpful 💪🏽🙏
good luck on your trip!
Great video! I love your channel man
Hi Mike, really useful video for all us willing to embark ourselves on the bike touring world. It would be nice also if you could include a comprehensive list of your gear on the description of the video. I’m extremely eager to check out your next videos about "Vildmarksvägen" since I’m planning to take that road next year.
I’m sure that you took essential repair tools, a spare tube, some patches? I was hoping you would list your essential repair gear because I’m not sure what is considered a must-have and what you can leave behind? For example, on a long trip, would you take a chain repair tool? Chain lube?
A helpful and thorough inventory of bike packing gear, Mike, thank you. Have a safe and wonderful trip.
Good luck Mike, safe travel
quite an editing job here. thanks for your efforts. and the youtube ad didn’t manage to detract from the great outro.
Will be great too to show how u packed these into the ortlieb 😁
Great video. With your short hair couldn’t soap be okay instead of packing shampoo, too.
Thank you for all your great videos all the best all ways kg
What kind of cycling shoes are those? They look comfortable.
Congrats on the drone. I also carry a dirty laundry bag so I don’t have to mix clean with dirty. Looks like you have your system down pat. Thanks for the video. Can’t wait for the next one. Take care and stay safe, Al
Great start too a Saturday morning the Leafs win in OT and you’ve got a drone! Look out should be a killer next couple of weeks…looking forward to fallowing along, safe travels Mike…🎥👍👋🇨🇦
great video as always, thank you!! do you have a video where you review your gear – I’d love to know how happy you are with the Sea to Summit COMFORT PLUS SELF INFLATING Sleeping Pad, I’m thinking of purchasing it, since I trust your experience and it seems to be in my budget. Thank you so much 🙂 Edit – Oh I think you have the insulated pad and not the self inflated one, right?
Have a great trip!!!
Have a great trip! Thanks for letting us come along.
and first aid kit ?
Have a good one. Interesting video.
Great video, thanks a lot from Cuba.
Nice load out Mike , the drone will add another dimension to an already great channel . dont want to be a downer but I ditched my sawyer for the katadyn filter as it way quicker at filtering lol atb Dave
Haha red wine and cider, key features on any biketrip! Lycka till och kör hårt!
Great to see you back at it Mike! Enjoy your trip!
Great closing Mike! …hope you have a wonderful trip, stay safe.
Everyone thinks they’re Quentin Tarantino!
Great video! Have a wonderful trip!!
The only two items that I would upgrade from your things are your bike pump: Topeak makes excellent road to Mountain Bike pumps (Morph series) which are much more durable and can be attached to your bike frame with their pump bracket mount to be installed behind the water bottle bosses, and your sleeping pad; Klymit (which comes in two sizes; regular and V-Luxe (wider pad)) it is more compact and weighs under 2lbs. Everything else is somewhat similar to what I have also. Happy Bike Touring; Adventure in, Traveling, Camping, Sight seeing, and Cycling all in one. Who could ask for more? 🙂 Where’s your camping stove?
2 bottles of red wine 🤣👍 Have a great trip!
I came back to this video to get the name brand of the Tent, so I can order now for the post-COVID future. For now, I can practice in the living room >:}
I can see from your preview that this video will be your best yet. Thanks for sharing the gear. Always interested in what folks take on a tour.
Tjena, lots of new toys. I hope you used the drone lots and the head net a little. Can’t wait to see the upcoming videos, and especially Vilhelmina. I can’t believe you didn’t take any cheese in a tube, we camped at the weekend and our friends took some!
Nice though out kit Mike. Be sure to take extra bags for the Sawyer. They can be bad about splitting open. I learned that the hard way. Lol I look forward to seeing your adventure and the drone will be cool. Keep the shiney side up. Atb, Tony
