This is a perfect ride for a gravel bike, there are no technical sections and the route is mostly fast. A mountain bike will work but you will be slower on the road & quick gravel sections. We suggest 38-40mm fast rolling gravel tyres . We will email tyre recommendations nearer the event based on conditions & our final recon rides.
