Thanks. Two sets of everything including the cycling gear.

Fantastic write up, this even beats our group travelogue cycling across the North East as you'd done all of it solo

Brilliant

Re: Trails of a cyclist | Traversing the Kerala coastline

Just finished reading the whole thing. What an amazing journey, and thank you for taking us along through the detailed write ups and pictures.
Was the saddle bag (if that's what it's called, the one under your seat) enough to carry all your belongings for the trip? I have a similar one but never had the chance to use it. I have signed up for an 8 day bicycle tour in June and wondering if that will be enough.

This is the product I use - https://treknride.com/product/cyclin...ru-saddle-bag/

It's deep and using proper folding (or rolling) technique, I can fit 2 sets of daily wear + extra cycling gear + other knick-knacks easily. Also, I carry very light material clothes. I'd say it would do for your June tour (if you are open to getting it washed every other day), but I would suggest trying it for a 3-4 day trip to get an idea.
