Enjoy Your Family Bike Ride with The Right Bike Trunk Bag

 

When heading out a bike ride with your family, the last thing you want to do is to be weighed down by a heavy backpack around your shoulders. Not only will it slow down your ride, but it’s also uncomfortable. That’s where a bike trunk bag can be a real lifesaver. It’s perfect for storing extra clothes, keys, wallet, cell phone, food items, and any additional supplies needed for the day’s journey.

  • Bringing correctly fitted bike helmets for everyone
  • Properly installing any required bike seats (rear or front), chariots, or bike carriers in advance of the ride
  • Packing a Biking Gear Emergency Essentials kit with a spare tube for each bike, a bike pump, a set of tire levers, a hex set multi-tool, a bike tire pressure gauge, zip ties, a spare master chain link, tubeless system supplies, other doodads (cable end covers, tire valve covers, Presta valve retaining nut)
  • Preparing an Outdoor Family Adventure Essentials kit with food, water, diapers, wipes, a wet bag, headlamp, first aid kit
  • Packing an extra change of clothes for every rider
  • Using a roomy and durable bike trunk bag, bike rear rack bag, or cycling bag
