Here we keep a record of the collective equipment needed/thought/available for each Biketour.

If you want to know what you should bring generally see here -> participant equipment recomendation or in the FAQs on www.ecotopiabiketour.net

Things often get left behind and often get mixed up with (particularly kitchen) equipment of the projects. One important tip when acquiring communal equipment is to choose items that have an exceptional design. Experience shows that even the most useless things don't get lost for months if their look is easy to recognise, but even the most essential things get left behind when no one is sure if they are ours or belong to the project.

Permanent equipment

Equipment that does not get used up and that we keep over the years.

Equipment that gets used up

Equipment that gets used up, so it needs to be acquired before and during the tour.

What? Who can bring it? / Who will take care of it? Where to get it (cheaply or for free)?
Medical Kit One old (incomplete) and one newer (slightly used) in Bcn Red Cross? Pharmacy?
Washing-up liquid have one half-used
Replacement tubes for trailers (16-inch and 20-inch)
Plastic bags
Matches, lighters have one jet lighter + one normal lighter
A4 sheets of paper
Big sheets of paper (for rota and workshops)
Markers have some
Pens (rate of loss about 1 per day…) have some
Puncture repair kit (with a looot of patches, maybe 10–20 per month?) we need to get patches and more glue The cheapest is to get a big tube of vulcanizer and to get several big packs of patches (that don't contain anything else). Those are difficult to find though. In some countries they have them in the home-improvement stores.
Rim tape have one half-used
Small book for finances we have one
Small book for circle decisions we have one
Gaffer tape we have one
Transparent tape (Tesa/Sellotape) we have one
Grease, chain-oil, deblocking spray we need more oil
Bungees (rate of loss +∞) 1 inner tube bungee

10 hooks

Inner tubes can be used, but bungees are more convenient because they have hooks. The best thing is to put hooks on inner tubes.

Optional things to bring

Things that are not absolutely necessary and are thus not communal, but would be useful if some people brought them to share.

What? Who can bring it?
Sewing Kit Candid, Michal
A netbook/laptop - so we can blog along the way! Candid, Michal
Battery charger for batteries of bike lights or mobile devices Candid

Other things that we have

Some things that are really not essential, but they are in our communal stuff:

  • colors and a brush to paint something (flags, etc)
