Bike tour packing list

Have you ever wondered what to take and how to pack for a stunning Fresh Eire Adventure? Look no further – Mathieu, our intern from La Rochelle Business School, will guide you through the process. While this list is not exhaustive it is a good benchmark.

Remember, the key here is ‘less is more’! Please pack sensibly – our guides really appreciate it when you travel with less luggage: ideally, one carry-on suitcase per person and one shared full-size suitcase per couple. It’s also a good idea to bring a folded soft duffel bag in your suitcase to help carry home any items you might purchase on your trip.
