A few of you will have read Dave Arthur’s reviews and article on the road.cc website. This is his first 3 Peaks and, like most, he’s burying his paranoia about lack of training in looking at the details of the bike. Eho can blame him?!

There’s not much I can do about preparing the body for the event now, too late for training, so instead I’ve been worrying about bike, tyre and equipment choice. In the video above I discuss some of these choices and reveal the bike and tyres I hope will get me through the event with no mechanical issues or flats. Fingers and toes crossed.
