For local trail riding, I’ve lately been using a fanny pack I picked up a couple shakes of lamb’s tail shy of twenty mtbing years ago. I strap it around my waist to hold a few things while out for an hour or so spin, sometimes when on the road too.
Remember back when fanny packs were used to hold keys, granola bars, a multi-tool, a patch kit and some cash? I never was one for stuffing things in jersey back pockets.
It was a few weeks back when I had one of those “ah-hah” moments: fanny pack. I went up to the attic and dug it out of a box. I got tired of strapping on a hydration pack for post-work unwinding. It didn’t seem necessary. I figured that if I had a major mechanical, I could walk, as my local after-office rides aren’t typically more than a twenty minute or maybe a one hour stroll from the car or house.
Anyway…I’m bringin’ back the fanny pack:
