I'm doing the cycling weekly Lakeland Monster next week and I'm just wondering if it's worth changing the tyres on my CX bike.
As it stands it's on Ritchey Excavaders in 35mm, I noticed that the overwhelming suggestion for the 3PCX was land cruisers. The route is roughly half back road, half lakes trails round Skidaw, Keswick etc. would they schwalbes be a good choice, considering how cheap they are and the amount of rocks up there?
If not, what kinda tyre pressures would be best as I normally ride with 40psi for the cast majority of my riding that is woodland and bridle way / river path based.
Just for info I weigh in at 80kgs in my riding kit
