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