what goes in your bike saddle bag, ALMSTHRE cycling bags  

What to pack in you bikes saddle bag?

Great question... No better person to answer that than professional cyclist Whitney Allison

What is the purpose of a saddle bag on your bike?

As Whitney states, the purpose of a saddle bag on your bike is "to be able to fix the most common mechanicals you're going to encounter on the road"
This would be the absolute minimum you would want to bring with you on a ride. If you pay attention to most professional gravel racers, this is the minimum that they race with as well.

Bike saddle bag checklist

- Co2 + inflator
- Multi tool
- Chain master link
- Tire plugs
- Tire lever
- Tube  
Whitney Allison pro tip: "pack the soft items at the top so they don't bang against the seat rails"
