Does anyone have a list of essentials needed to outfit a bike for general path riding? Tube patches, seat bag, etc?
 
Seat or handlebar bag, 2 replacement tubes, tire removal irons, pump, a small cut-out section of old tire to use inside the tire in case of a casing rip (I never had to use it!). Small adjustable wrench or 'bike tool combo', allen key tool combo. A few paper towels to wipe grease / oil off your hands. Small first-aid kit.

Definitely need to have a repair kit and a first aid kit. I always keep both in case something happens while cycling. I do a lot of long distance cycling so I always want to be prepared for anything.

I agree with the repair and first aid kit since it'll come in handy if you're traveling far. I use the smart pannier bag from Blix for extra storage and their front basket to hold my Hydroflask.

Anyone has a good place they recommend buying a repair kit? I haven't been able to find anything terribly well made
