First Aid Kit Suggestions

We believe safety and emergency preparedness is every mountain biker's responsibility. To that end, we believe all riders should carry at least basic first aid supplies (and know how to use them), so that we will all be prepared to help each other (and ourselves) when accidents occur. Pre-assembled first aid kits are widely available online or in recreation stores, containing different assortments of contents. The list provided here gives suggestions to modify an existing kit, or to build your own from scratch. The large kit list is intended for coaches, group leaders, or for longer days spent further in the woods, while the small kit is intended for short adventures and minimal weight. Don't want to build your own kit? We have you covered! Click the link below to buy a pre-assembled bike-specific first aid kit made by friends of BCLL.
