Below are three photographs showing all the gear and equipment I arrived in Africa with on my bike.
I have since got rid of the MSR stove and fuel bottle as I had problems with this and I forgot the bike helmet in Bissau (although I never actually strapped it on my head before then anyway).
Regarding photographic and electronic equipment – this is all holding up exceedingly well on the bumpy Africa roads. No complaints here.
And then there’s the few items that didn’t really fit in the first photograph – namely my money belt, passport and other documents plus reading material and maps.
I have since finished reading Graham Greene and have expanded my reading collection to, at it’s height, seven reading books in my panniers.
I shall be including a comprehensive list of all the equipment I have, as shown in these photos, in a future update.
