- Tyres for London To Brighton Off Road?
I have signed up to the London to Brighton off road event in September. It’s 75 miles on bridleways, old railway tracks and a bit of woodland singletrack I believe. I would appreciate some opinions regarding tyre choice. I’d be looking for something light and fast rolling that I could use afterwards for the extremely rare occasions that the trails are dry. I’ll be doing it on my Trance X3 which has 26 inch tyres currently on the Giant standard rims.

I did this a while back on Spesh Captains. It’ll depend on the weather, but being September it’s most likely to be fair so grip won’t necessarily be a factor.
Captain up front and Fast Trak at the back will probably suffice, plus you’ll have ample rubber endowment to go and play off piste if you want.
You might want to think about a tubeless kit too, although none of my group punctured on the route back in 2011.Posted 5 years agoPaineyMember
I did some of this route last year and did the last few miles yesterday where it’s very muddy but even now you could ride it on something like Conti Race King’s, Schwalbe Racing Ralphs etc. The downs link bridleway is mostly gravel based so is fast rolling.
I’m going to sign up to do it this year as well. I met a friend who was doing the ride last year, brought him some supplies and rode the last third with him. Definitely worth doing he reckons.Posted 5 years ago
