    I am planning to do a double century soon. The course is twice around a century loop, with a check point at the half-way point. You can send a drop bag to the checkpoint, which you can access at mile 50 & 150 (you can get back you your car at mile 100). The ride rules are randonneur style, so you cannot get assistance, except at the checkpoints. So I want to have anything I may need either in the bag or in my car.

    Here is what I have come up with for my drop bag checklist (let me know what I've forgotten):

    Dry clothes (in case of rain)
    Jersey
    Shorts
    Socks
    Gloves
    Food
    Gels
    Bars
    Bananas (potassium)
    Drink
    Sports drink (electrolytes)
    Energy drink (caffeine)
    Plain water
    Parts & supplies
    Tubes
    Spare Tire
    CO2 cylinders
    Equipment
    Shoes w/cleats
    Lights (night finish)
    Clear glasses (night riding)
    Other
    Sunscreen
    Ibuprofen (pain/anti-inflammatory)
    Pink Bismuth (diarrhea/upset stomach)
    Antacid tablets
