What to Pack for CNC?

Below is a list of items that cyclists and the CNC Staff have put together as a suggestion for what to bring on a multi-day bike tour in North Carolina. You may use this as a packing checklist, but keep in mind, this list is just a recommendation. There may be items you may want to bring that are not on this list. You can also visit our Facebook page or Message Board and ask other CNC riders what they bring. 

 
Note: Strapping or tying anything to your bag(s) is prohibited. CNC does not allow coolers, chairs, extra bikes, hard walled trunks, Tupperware bins, suitcases or gas stoves on the luggage trucks.
