|Basically, you pack a zip loc bag for each day of your bike tour. You put the following in each bag:
When you get up for opening day of your bike tour (Day #1; unpack the first zip loc bag. Put on the fresh gear. Cover yourself with Sunscreen (regardless of the sun). and ingest one of your vitamin packs. Place the carbohydrate shots & electrolyte drink packs in your cycling jersey pocket (and use throughout the day). Leave the remaining supplements (recovery drink & vitamin pack) and toiletries in their original packed zip loc bag.
When you bike into camp at the end of your first day:
After your shower:
And at the end of the day (before falling sleep):
The second day, when you wake up, you unzip the next zip loc bag and everything you need for that day’s bike tour is inside. Put on the fresh gear. Cover yourself with Sunscreen. Ingest one of your vitamin packs. Place the carbohydrate shots & electrolyte drink packs in your cycling jersey pocket. And, leave the remaining supplements in their original zip loc bag. When you bike into camp at the end of your second day, Day #2, repeat the same procedure as you did for the day before, Day #1.
Additional toiletries should be packed in 1 additional zip loc bag. Wrap your “in camp” clothes in the heavy duty glad bags (in case of unexpected showers during your sleeping time/or/ water damage from transport).
Also, because of condensation on the tent walls, do not let anything touch the sides of your tent.
