    I've been up your neck of the woods and cycled along disused railway lines on Sustrans routes using a variety of bikes with full camping gear. Apart from punctures there's ben no problems with my road bikes or touring bikes.

    Go for it.

  • Met a guy yesterday at Lochwinnoch on said bike......been all over Europe on his,and uses it every day to get to work as well,must be all right!He had just cycled down from Glasgow on a Sustrans track,was having tea and cake then heading back,'bout 30 milesallround. :)
