We’ve compiled kit lists from 37 different long distance cycle tourers and put them all in one place: here.
The cyclists all come from the Database of Long Distance Cycle Journeys (LDCJ)* . Of the 139 trips registered, 37 of them have detailed kit lists available online and they’re all listed below.
I’m sure you’re not going to read them all right now but hopefully this is a useful resource for anyone thinking about kit for their own round-the-world journey. You might also like Tom Allen’s Essential Gear for Cycle Touring book.
You can view our own kit list here.
*LDCJ is probably the world’s largest cycle touring data set. We’ve spent the last year collecting detailed information for some 200 cycle tourists who have literally cycled millions of miles between them. There are graphs, stats and figures for fastest journeys, average monthly costs, types of bike/tyre/handlebars used, which countries are most popular and more.
