Recently had in mind to cycle up to Malacca for a trip. Then I had some friends suggesting the same.
Malacca is about 250KM away from my home.
We are planning to hit it in a day. Spend a day in Malacca. Hop to Batu Pahat to take it easy. And then home. It will be a 4D3N trip.
I believe, with procrastination out of the way, we will make it.
Just sharing my pack and prep here.
Topeak 10L saddle bag
This is the main carry for my clothings. I have packed 1 day worth of clothing with a pair of slippers easily. This trip will be slightly more as I will try to “make do” for a 4D3N trip.
- pair of shorts
- Pair of socks
- Pair of slippers
- 3 pairs of briefs
- Pair of boxers
- 2 T-Shirts
Rapha Handlebar bag
I use this for portable battery bank, repair kit and spare tubes.
Final setup on bike
For these trips, I removed my usual bike computer + Go Pro mount.
I mounted the bike computer on the stem and the light on the handlebar.
This is to allow me to have access to the handlebar bag on the go should i want to reach in for some snacks.
WIth both bags mounted onto the bike, I mounted the rear Exposure lights with the usual mount. I just make do.
Just normal riding. Past few weeks has been lesser than average 120km/week. We will be doing 520km in 4 days. That will be much more volume than usual. Let’s hope I can roll.
