john 'o' Groats to Lands End
« on: 26 Mar 2015 at 19:46 »
Hi, i am thinking of having a go at this next year, probably about May. This will probably be a one off, so i want it to be a trip to remember!
i want to go on a prewar bike ( i have a MKV) and am thinking of doing around about 150 miles per day. So, my question is if I am going to buy a bike especially for this trip which bike? An EW or perhaps something a bit later. i am not overly concerned with speed, so anything that can cruise at 40mph would be fine. Any recommendations for reliability or 'bad uns' to steer clear of. unfortunately there is not a bottomless pit of money, so common models with prices that reflect that would be best. All advice appreciated
cheers Mick
