Smile hello Jason , I cant Picture your face , im sure we've met though,

r u going off road?.

I take loads of shtuff, but, minimum....

spare tube, chain tool, pump, quick links are handy for time (chain repair),
I would recommend a multi tool (bout 15-20 qiud) is bit pricy but well handy,( and some have a chain tool built into them) some times you may also need tyre levers and repair kit .

I dunno man sounds alot , but it isn't really , if your doing alot of miles you tend to take more kit, like maybe a wind or water proof jacket and stuff also,

if you are gonna go far I would recommend getting a foldable tyre (for a spare),

the main things that go are the chain and tubes,

sorry man there are some other things too,

if your gonna hope to ride for a few days you might want to take a spare set of brake pads, if you and you missus have different brakes the pads may be different so.....

and also recommended is a gear hanger,
as before if you have different bikes these may differ.

oh yeah one last thing , if all else fails Im sure there will be some good walks somewhere,.

hope that helps.
