There's a new mountain bike course here in Missoula and we're all having fun getting out on it! However, with the large number of scary bumps and crazy pitches, I've been adding something else to my usual carry-along stock of tubes, tire levers, etc. After a nasty little spill awhile ago, I've decided to carry a basic first-aid kit with me as well.
The Ultralight Medical Kit has everything you need for the most common biking injuries, and it comes in a nice, watertight case. When I run out of band-aids or first aid cream, I just replenish them! I know it can seem like extra trouble to carry a first aid kit, but when the need arises, you'll always be glad you have it.
