Retrobike rides typically feature several mechanicals, but TK rides with a tardis-like Camelbak that contains just about everything you could ever feasibly need, including an inflatable A-team who will build you a replacement bike from twigs, stones and mud while humming the theme tune.

Pack a spare inner-tube just incase - maybe it's just me and my inability to 'ride light', but pinch flats and Glentress seem to go hand in hand, and patching a tube in the dark = :?

Don't think i've ever been to Glentress without having at least two punctures. Got two on spooky alone last time.

Can't decide what to bring. Cotic or Misfire. Also a part of me wants to bring the singlespeed Humuhumu. At least it will give me an excuse for walking.
