Scoot the Loop: Packing List

by Nov 10, 2022 | First published in 2016Adventure, Scoot the Loop

We want to avoid carrying weight to give our knees the best possible chance on our 240km Scooter challenge, so packing light was essential for this trip. Thanks to OverBoard, we were able to kit out our scooters with 2 front waterproof panniers each.  At 12L each, the panniers are surprisingly spacious, leaving us with ample of space so we even managed to squeeze in a sneaky luxury – a book! Here’s our full kit list:
