    Im taking part in my first duathlon on Saturday...admittedly Im doing it in a relay and Im just doing the bike leg....what does everyone carry with them? Its a 13 mile leg which means 3 laps. Im guessing most people are going to say strip the bike down! But Im not very quick anyway and its a low key event, I was thinking of taking my tool bottle with a spare tube and puncture kit in one of the cages, just in case the P fairy visits halfway through a lap.....what does everyone else say?
