Paul Errington’s Long Distance Steed

By Paul Errington
10, Jun, 2015

Bike Set Up

Paul has been uping the distance of rides lately after the Rovaniemi 150 - putting aside his Fat Bike for now and concentrating on some skinnier tyres. 

Sampling some road riding and Audax rides to keep fit for those off-road trips - 

'The Mosstrooper is a 300km ride starting and finishing in Ponteland only 15km from my home so seemed an ideal day out to meet new people and at least 100km of the ride would be on roads unfamiliar to me.'

After the ride Paul looked to set up the bike for a long Multi-day trip keeping it light - Check out Paul's blog for an insight into his thinking (if you can handle it!) but check out some pics below...
