- Berwick-Edinburgh-Berwick, what bike?
Outward via PeeblesPosted 5 years ago
Return along the coast
Sustrans routes out and back
170 miles over 3 days (overnight in Edinburgh will get messy!) staying in hostels en route so no huge luggage requirement and pace won’t be too high as its more aimed at sightseeing cake and beer than speed
Do I take the road bike, which is actually a Trek x01 cyclocross bike, with rack and panniers, or the Inbred with same rack rigid forks and semi slicks (or rather worn Racing Ralph’s)
Others will be on a mix of MTB with slicks, touring bikes, or hybrids
I’m thinking a diversion around GT blue route to start the second day, which could be a bit of fun on a fully loaded cyclocross bike?iain1775Subscriber
That was my thinking actually, or set out early, leave at our accommodation and nip back to get them afterwardsPosted 5 years ago
My real quandary is do I compromise on the rest of the ride and ‘drag’ the mtb along the roads, or do I ‘compromise’ the GT blue by trying it on a cyclocross bike
Part of me thinks the blue will be fine on a crosser and may actually be more fun
