The easiest way to deal with a flat tire or mechanical problem is to take advantage of the bike racks on all CATS buses, but a small tool kit isn’t a bad idea if you’ve got far to ride. Some of our favourite items:

  • Pump (CO2¬†or manual).
  • Bike tube.
  • Patch kit.
  • Tire levers.
  • Allen wrench set or bike multi-tool (Alien or similar).
  • Master link (for chain).
  • Shop rag or shopping bag to hold tools and parts during repairs.

The essentials are:

  • Pump
  • Tube
  • Tire Levers

Remember: Don’t let your bag get so heavy that you stop enjoying the ride!
