If you’re going to buy just one gadget to take on a bike tour, make it the Kindle eBook reader.

We know that’s a bold statement but after buying a Kindle 3 and playing with it for a couple months, we’re convinced that this is one of the best things a book-loving bike tourist could carry.

The Kindle. Small enough to fit inside your handlebar bag. Powerful enough to hold 1000s of books.

We’ve surprised even ourselves with our love for the Kindle because we never thought we’d enjoy reading books on a screen instead of paper, but the Kindle is truly an enjoyable reading experience.

Here’s what we love about it so much:

  • Light and compact. At just 240g, it weighs less than most paperbacks.
  • Great battery life. It lasts up to 1 month with the wi-fi turned off.
  • Holds up to 3,500 books. This is great for bike tours where you may not have easy or cheap access to physical books.
  • Easy on the eyes. The display really doesn’t tire your eyes out. It feels like reading a book on paper.
