what will i take with me, what should i wear?
Also in this case a question of how much...
It leads me through different climate zones. So you have to be prepared...
Everything should have minimum 2 Functions. Additionally there is always the question: „Is it really necessary?“
Here´s a little Scheddule :
I always hated the stink of synthetic Underwear so i changed to Merinowool. The most of my Stuff will be from this material. Advantage: No Stink and very comfortable. It won´t be possible to wash the clothes (and me) so often so there will be a lot of glad people on the way ;-)
- 3 Underpants (Merino)
- 2 Bikeshorts (cushioned)
- 2 Pair of Socks normal (Merino)
- 1 Pair of Socks thin (Merino)
- 1 Pair of Socks warm (Merino)
- 1 long Underpants (Polartec-Powerstretch)
My Bottom will be very grateful about some cushion in the beginning. I will take two, so i can wash one... 2 normal Socks and for the extremes (cold/warm) one pair each should work. The long trouser is very warm and should work as a relaxed trouser for the Evening in the Tent... ;-)
- 3 T-Shirts (Merino)
nothing else to say...
- 1 Bikeshort
- 1 light long Trousers
- 1 waterproof Trousers
The Bikeshort can be combined with some chausses so you don´t need a long Trouser for the Bike.So the long Trouser is specially for nonbiking Days and Evenings. If it´s raining the waterproof Trousers (my old Skitouring-Trousers) should work, also in extreme Conditions together with the Polartec-Underpants.
my favorite Part of Clothing for every condition, the Rainjacket for the wet and/or windy moments and the Primaloftjacket for the cold Days and Nights
- 1 Pair of Polartec Gloves
- 1 Pair of Bike-Gloves
the Polartec-Gloves guided me in the Winter on my way to work, this is a material-Test up in Davos. Should work for Autumn. For the really cold days i have to organize something on the way...
with the Sandals and the Overshoes it will work for 90% of the Journey. For the really cold days and the Peaks i got the Alpineboots. There are so much peaks along the road, i can´t just ride around them ;-)
- 3 Scarfs
- 1 Davos-Dahei Cap
- 1 Baseballcap
- 1 Microfiber-Towel extralarge (for the beach...)
- Bathing trunks
- 1 Pair of Chausses (for the cool morning/evening rides)
- 1 Pair of Oversleeves (for the cool morning/evening rides)
the clothes i choosed are approved on Mountain- and Skitouring Trips. Layered Clothing is Trump. On the Bike it´s almost enough to wear a thin layer under the windproof Jacket.
Getting cold is not the problem if you keep moving.
there should always be a solution with the Schedule above.
