    I choose mudguards. Cycling miles with a wet arse is uncomfortable at the time and possibly for several days after. I’d also attach a mudflap to the front mudguard to help preserve the chainset.

    And have you got some nice Lycra?
    Cycling is the new golf. You have to have all the gear.

    Apart from a helmet and hi viz I cycle in jeans and trainers on this, never had an issue.
    But then I'm not doing an average of 30kph over 70k every day!


    It suits me to a tee, plan to do the coast to coast on it next year.
    Highly recommended.

    I wear a cycling bandana under my helmet to keep the sweat off. Wash bandana with the rest if my kit. Keeps the helmet padded inserts in better nick. I've also washed them on occasion.
  5. I was aching a bit last night when I went to bed and fully expected to wake up feeling like I'd dropped the soap in the prison shower, fortunately I feel fine today. Now trying to get away from the office to get out on it again!!

    Cheers BB

    Take a tip. If you do the C2C, buy some cycling shorts beforehand. I'm not suggesting that you dress up like Lance Armstrong, just get some proper cycling shorts. They can be baggy or tight, and you can put normal shorts on over them if you want. Just avoid the normal grundies and jeans until you get to the pub at night, because trust me, if you cycle a decent distance and the seam of your jeans wears a hole in that bit of skin between your wedding tackle and your fundamental orifice, you will not like it. You will like it still less if you cycle the next day.
