Hi I am cycling devon coast to coast in august and wondered which bike to use, I usually ride a Specialized Sirrus Pro Hybrid Bike which has a carbon frame. I have been told if there is too much off road this bike may not be suitable. Can anyone help?

You don't say which route you're taking.

If it's the Tour of Britain Pro Ride on 5 Sept then your bike sounds fine but if it's the Sustrans route you may need something a bit sturdier.

My Profile
I did the Sustrans route a couple of years ago and there are quite a few fairly tough off-road sections that are not ideal for road bikes, although a couple of our party did have road bikes. Better with a hybrid if possible.

My Latest Route: May 2010 Baldock to Therfield Circular
