- riding the welsh ride thing on a cyclo cross bike? bad idea
The route is mostly going to be bridle paths and roads, going to try and avoid hard single track mtb stuff if possible.
I haven’t road my dedicated cross bike loaded up but have ridden my kaffenback as a tourer the whole length of Wales but that was on road.
The only other option I have is my anthem but I don’t like the idea of rear sus bouncing under weight, trying to make kit taken as light as possible but it’s still going to weigh a fair bit.Posted 4 years agoscandalousMember
there are loads of non-existent bridleways. and even the ones that do exist seem to bugger off at night (when its blowing a gale and you are wet and you have a huge hill to get over and down and great bog to wade through / negotiate before you can even think of stopping!)
best fun you can have with your trousers on – FACT!Posted 4 years ago
Do you have local knowledge of the bridleways?
Nooooooooooooo we have three OS maps, a pen and some cordinates of where to head to roughly and a slightly over inflated enthusiasm of we are going to suffer but it’ll be great fun, well when we look back 😀
Scandalous – Can’t wait, going to kit my bike out on Wednesday and give it a test ride.Posted 4 years ago
