    Biking: Photography essentials?

    I'm wondering what you guys bring when you go biking?

    I bring my pentax, 35mm,55mm, and 105mm. I bring the spot meter if I'm shooting slides, and water.

    It depends on what I intend. I might take my SLR kit with 28mm, 50mm, 135mm and 200mm lenses, or I might take my lighter rf kit with 40mm and 90mm lenses. I'll take about twenty or thirty rolls of film, FP4+, HP5+ Kodak VR200 and Kodak VR400. I don't take a tripod instead I take a beanbag camera support.
    In the rack bag I take a puncture repair kit, a pump, a cycling multi-tool and a spare inner tube, lightweight waterproofs for me, a couple of plastic carrier bags to put my camera bag in should I encounter a real downpour.

    I always take water.

    Dear Marko,

    Bicycling or motorcycling? I can tell you a lot more about the latter...

    Bicycling, but I guess tips for motorbiking would be good too, though you would not get as tired as pedaling a bike.

    Hi Roger,
    Please tell us more about the latter!
    I have a Kawasaki W650 equipped with a single rear luggage carrier. How much is the vibration likely to damage cameras and other equipment? Is there any other way than padding to protect gear.

    Regards,
    John

    Usually I take a minimalistic approach, that is, a camera small enough to fit in a jesery pocket.
    But, I recently found that my Hasselblad and a pilot meter fit nicely into my handlebar bag.

    On the motorcycle, I have carried cameras up to the Shen Hao 4x5. I have the advantage (and disadvantage) of having a sidecar rig.

    On bicycles I generally use a rangefinder, most often the Canonette GIII. I carry it in a handlebar bag loaded with HP5 or FP4.

    I used Givi panniers to lug all my gear around on my FJ12. The tripod would be strapped widthways across the back seat which made zipping between standing lines of cars a little more hairy than usual. Just get loads of bungee straps, luggage ties etc. Something else; because my panniers sat more or less on top of the exhausts, I made sure my films were sealed in plastic bags to protect them against exhaust fumes.

    I'm told that my Father's Speed Graphic, which I now own, made several trips in the saddle bags of his Harley. Unfortunately, the Harley was well before my time, but the Speed doesn't seem to have suffered much for the experience.
