Your list is pretty good. I would add in at least another set of pads (just street pads) along with brake fluid/bleeder. Also would bring tire patch kit just in-case, unless you are bring multiple wheel sets.

Definitely don’t sleep on bringing the drugs. Long hot days can cause some headaches and the pills make all the difference.

Updated. I didn’t add the bleeder cuz it takes up a decent amount of space and can be replaced with someone elses foot. :smiley:
