Tom Joyce — nice!

Yes, from what I remember those parts of the journey were still unpaved making it a few bumpy miles for a number of stretches.

The bikes (and tyres) we used were pretty unspectacular. Mine was from Decathalon about 10 years ago I think…

In general though it was brilliant. The chance to see how the country connected together, see some great nature and stop at canalside pubs was an excellent way to spend a few days.

If you end up going for it — best of luck!
