    umm it depends a lot on how and what you are doing at the moment, more info needed but just riding for 2+ hours every weekend will help (ill give you more stuff when I get the info)

    Yes, you need to pace yourself. Bring a spare tube and a CO2 inflator. If you have been riding, 30 miles is not far, if you have not been riding, that is a long way.

    30 miles isn't too bad, unless there is a lot of uphill. As far as pacing it depends on how often you ride and what level you're at.

    A few things I have with me on long rides:

    1. Cell Phone

    2. Spare tube and CO2 inflator

    3. Multi-tool

    4. Hydration (I use a camelbak)

    5. Gloves and Sunglasses (depending on weather conditions)

    6. Brave Soldier Crash Pak (first aid for treating road rash, scrapes, etc... just in case)
