Epworth Pilgrimage tyre upgrade for Jane

Our Epworth Pilgrimage at the end of May includes a number of gravel sections and some huge potholes. Jane’s bike still has the original 23mm tyres on it so I have just ordered her an upgrade to 25mm Schwalbe Durano Plus Rigid tyres. I used the 28mm version on my Lands End to John o’Groats ride and didn’t get a single puncture.

I am hoping that the mudguards she has will still fit!

For the actual ride I am going to suggest I remove her rear rack and instead lend her one of my Bridge Street saddlebags (I’m very pleased with these!) that will save a bit of weight to make up for the heavier tyres. 😉
