Rob roy challenge.
edited February 2011
Anybody done this charity event in the past and if so will my hybrid on marathon pluses manage or would different tyres suit?
If i aint riding it, then im thinking about riding it.
Not done it but some of these charity rides annoy me a bit with the nominated charities and minimum fundraising amount. The Rob Roy states that you must raise £400 minimum sponsorship, so their nominated charity doesn't want me to raise money for them if I can only raise £300??
I've done it, in 2007.
The cycling stage is mostly asphalt but with a long stretch on a disused railtrack so fairly hard packed gravel. I'd say Marathon pluses on a hybrid would be fine.
I know someone who's done it on a Boardman hybrid with the standard 28mm Maxxis Detonators, so you should be fine.
