I ride mostly in the Dark Peak area with occasional missions to Calderdale. I usually use Bontrager Jones ACX 2.2 tyres as I find they work well on rocky gritstone terrain and only really come unstuck in really sticky mud.
I've only ridden with them in the lakes once and to be honest I found them a bit of a nightmare. The front wheel washed out constantly on gravel and they seemed generally useless on wet slate. I'm off to Grizedale next weekend and am concerned of a repeat performance so was thinking of trying something new.
Obviously I don't want to buy a pair of tyres for one weekend, so I suppose I'm looking for a general multi-season lake district tyre. 2.1 - 2.25 wide, reasonably fast rolling and not unmanageable in mud.
Any recommendations would be much appreciated
