I remember seeing that list too, it mentioned bike must be in good repair, have DOT tires, carry a tow rope, tire changing tools, etc. It would be nice to see a list of what each rider must have - and what each team must have.

Here's the link to the RR website.

Off the top of my head, I'll give it a shot at listing what I want to have.

Each Rider
bike in good repair with DOT off road tires.
appropriate food, clothes & shelter (prepare for rain)
cooking and eating equipment and utensils as required - everyone is different
toiletries (soap, tp, toothbrush, etc)
tool kit for your bike.
liter or two of extra fuel.
liter or two of water.
reasonable amount of cash.
trail tested system for carrying all the gear on the bike.

Each Team
minimum of 2 weatherproof GPS units with RR routes loaded.
tire tube repair tools - inflation device, irons, good patch kit.
basic first aid supplies.
block & tackle (rope and pulley)
tow rope


Am I forgetting anything?
