You never want to overload yourself, but you never want to be ill prepared either so here are a few lists of equipment that I advise for any hike, walk, amble or bike ride.

It is also important to check the weather-it’ll affect what you’ll need!


  • Water
  • Coat/jumper/waterproof
  • Good shoes or wellies
  • Map
  • Phone (charged)
  • Camera
  • Snacks / picnic (optional!)

Bike rides (as above plus….)

  • Tyre pump
  • Adjustable spanner
  • Puncture repair kit
  • Bike and helmet!
