That looks like a great day out – Can I ask how the DLs got along? I’ve just bought one and have thought about doing some of this type of riding on it.
Were you guys riding with ‘knoblies’ – I’ve gone for an “80% road tyre” and hope it would cope well enough with most of that, although some of the stream banks looked quite soft…
The smaller bikes mostly had knobblies fitted, the Strom’ss 80/20 or even more road biased tyres. How they went depended on the rider, most of them were more towards the back of the field taking it easy as it was pretty slippery in a few places but there were several Strom’s at the sharp end of the pack and doing fine.
The stream banks were mostly pretty firm actually.
