(WA) Cycling to Midland TAFE

Postby roland985 » Mon Aug 08, 2011 6:01 pm

Hi Guys, I have a nice Merida MTB, and I have decided to gear it up for the 24 km (both ways) journey to TAFE and back. The bike is a nice rugged workhorse I have had for 3 years. The roads I take are a mixture of gravel tracks, pathways (oh how I hate those, but I hate trucks more), and the standard roads. I have done the trial run today, and have found (timewise) it is on parity with the bus on a bad day, and better than the bus on a good day... Do you think I should get road slicks? I need to do some gravel riding...

Roland985, great name :).

If the gravel is not too bad, then yes, go for the slicks. They will assist on the road sections.
