The riders are each taking a slightly different approach with their bikes.

Steve (Nelly) was considering using his specialized roubaix which has been used on his previous big rides. As it isn’t designed to take the stresses and strains of touring with panniers he’s instead purchased a new bike for the trip. With the expert help of the Bike Shed in Exeter he’ll be using a bike much better suited to cope with the demands of the ride.

Shane will be using his cyclocross bike. Although not designed specifically as a tourer it is strong and sturdy enough to be able to cope with the demands of the ride. The disc brakes will help on the long alpine descents too.
