Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
2 hours 10 mins  (1 hours 30 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

    Josie Heffernan I've a long history in cycling at all levels, but I'm not as fit or as fast as I'd like so i's just great to get out and have some fun on a bike - just don't expect too much of me as mechanic.
