When I look at the forums there are those for mountain road and cummuting but none for "general" touring .

My preference is for cycling in the country, hill climbing and the occassional off-road (with 700c wheels) but not for speed or rough stuff.

Cant we have our own section?

    Ok to help us help you.

    which of the Mags do you read?
    "Do not follow where the path may lead, Go instead where there is no path, and Leave a Trail."

  • Of those I only read C+, the others have no interest to me. I also read the CTC magazine and got a German touring mag last year which was excellent

    My bike is a Dawes 601 discovery with deore 27 gearing as I need it ,around North Lancs Dales and Lakes

    I usually do afternoon rides of 5-6 hours in warmer months and cover 50 65 miles including some good hills

    I am working on a route of 42 miles for C+ at present
