  • Hey there! This looks great and something I'd like to do. I'm wanting an adventure on my Brompton... what's your thoughts on this? Is the route suitable for little wheels do you think? Thanks :)

  • Hi JLeo, like the idea, im not sure of the capability of a brompton off road. If you're used to riding it off road on some rough terrain then i dont see an issue. Would love to see the outcome, check out our website for more details on the bikes we'd recommend. Cheers :)

  • Great route Ben, anyone done it backwards?

    August 26, 2022
  • Hi John, yes a couple of people have done it backward. The'll be a few rougher uphill sections which you will have to push up, and less fun tarmac descents. I'd always recommend doing it the correct way, but no reason why you cant! :)
