The following basic equipment checklist should help you with your packing. Please remember that you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment down to a minimum. NB. This is just a check-list. We are not asking you to bring everything on this list; much will depend on personal preference. As a general rule, cyclists will need similar clothing to trekkers. The one additional (essential) item is good quality padded cycling shorts (loose and baggy, as previously discussed).
- Cycling helmet
- Fleece headband (to keep your ears warm)
- Lightweight long sleeved thermal shirt
- Lightweight windproof biking jacket
- T-shirts (3)
- Padded cycling shorts - baggy style
- Underwear (4 pairs)
- Lightweight trekking boots
- Camelbak or 2 x 1 litre water bottles & cages
- Sleeping bag
- Small padlock & spare keys
- Fingerless biking gloves
- Waterproof (breathable) jacket
- Fleece jumper (eg Polartec 200)
- Light weight ‘trekking style’ pants
- Warm cycling tights
- Socks (4 pairs)
- Cycling shoes
- Spare laces
- Small towel
- First aid kit (See first Aid medicine above)
- Head lamp eg. Petzl Zoom (spare bulb & battery)
- 4 large plastic bags (for keeping items dry in kitbag)
In addition to the checklists for general and trekking equipment above, and depending on the trip you have chosen, various items of mountaineering equipment may also be required, eg:
- Plastic boots and crampons (preferably step-in bindings) with front points.
- Mountaineering harness.
- Mountaineering ice-axe (60-75cms long depending on your height and personal preference.)
- 120cms (4ft) climbing sling and two locking carabineers
- Telescopic ski-sticks (optional)
- Prussik loops
- Climbing helmet (optional)
Most if not all of this equipment will be needed for any trip that crosses steep, snow-covered ground, or which includes sections of glacier travel. Our recommendation that you take no more than 15 kilos (33 pounds) of trekking equipment does not include your plastic boots, ice axe, crampons or harness/carabineers. (During the trek, climbing hardware will be carried separately from your personal trek bag, in group bags until needed).
