Camino First Aid

A first aid kit is an important part of any touring cyclists packing list. Injuries tend to happen to me almost daily, and the ability to patch up, stop any bleeding, add some antiseptic and get going is essential. There's a temptation to pack everything you may need an fill a whole pannier. If you're travelling as a group you can share medical kit.

Here's what we packed:

  • Tweezers
  • Scissors
  • Plasters, tape, gauze
  • Dioralyte
  • Vitamins
  • Eye drops
  • Prescription medications
  • Imodium
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Bite cream
  • Savlon
  • Insect repellant
  • Painkillers
