    Cycling jerseys have 3 pockets which are massively expansive?

    On the charity ride I did yesterday my pockets and saddle pack were crammed when I started off. On a normal club ride there's a café stop in the middle so I don't carry any food, yesterday there was no planned stop so I was carrying food, a cereal bar, several pieces of malt loaf and a banana, so my glasses had to go in the saddle pack to make room for the food.

    I sometimes take a small back pack. Only if i'm going 30 miles plus though.

    Tried, collects in your navel and pops out like a freshly created Hershey's Kiss.

    I wouldn't carry food for any ride less than 60 miles and for rides up to 45 miles I find 1 750ml bottle sufficient.
