Equipment:

The equipment I take will be minimal as everthing has to be carrying with me. It's obviously difficult though to carry large quantities of water, petrol, tools, spares, camping gear, protective bike clothing, camera equipment, medical equipment, toiletries, maps, documentation and possibly even a change of socks. The range of temperatures and climates won't help either (from below freezing in the desert at altitude at night, to the heat of the Sahara or tropical downpoors of central Africa). I therefore have to be very selective about the kit I take. The equipment will have to be as small and lightweight but as strong as possible to take the daily abuse it is likely to receive.
