This VLOG covers the kit I use on my cycle touring adventures. This choice of kit has been inspired by over c.6000 km of cycle touring, including a 3700km cycle across South America. This kit is for those who want to be lightweight, compact and comfortable!
I will follow this VLOG with an overview of the clothing I took with me..
