    I have more experience hiking than overnight riding, but in my experience on a bike, and hiking:
    – get rid of the backpack
    – use a fleece-lined stuff-sack for a pillow
    – take a Z-rest (because inflatable pads fail eventually)
    – take a tent biking that doesn’t need a HIKING pole
    – you need screen to keep the bugs out
    – ‘Tarptents’ are great, except when driving rain knocks the condensation onto you inside
