My office is potentially moving from Brighton (where I live) to Crawley, about a 25 mile ride on b roads and bike paths.I'm trying to look on the bright side by turning it into a riding challenge to get me fit.
Anyone on here do this commute, or similar? I undersand it's a rough surface in parts and I'm looking at an hour and half at least (according to LBS).
Any bike recommendations for a bike load of b roads, bike paths and puddles? I'm thinking of slicks and gears on my 29er ss (Kona Honzo) but my lbs recommended something like a Tricross. I've also seen the Kona Rove and Trek Crossrip, both of which look pretty nice.
All thoughts welcome. My current commute is about 5 miles through national park with singletrack and road alternatives, so it's a change but one I'm looking forward to (I think).
