clothes? Who knew. Including shoes, maybe a pair to wear & a spare.

Larger collapsible container for carrying water from source to camp site? Handy for cooking, washing up, etc. Maybe 1 gal capacity if it's just you, larger if more people.

(Assuming that the water bottle on your list was for drinking from, especially while you're on the move.)

Two spoons: One larger, one teaspoon.

Sun protection: sunscreen, brimmed hat, sunglasses, lip balm.

Seconding first aid kit, especially one with moleskin for blister protection.

Disclaimer: Not a camper.

Quick snacks for during ride (Kind bar or whatever) in case of blood sugar fail? Small first aid kit? Rehydration tablets/packets if it's hot/you're otherwise likely to need?
