hello all. new here.
i have suddenly hit a mid-life crisis and decided that i want to cycle lands end to john o'groats later this year with a few friends.
now, here is my problem. i havn't got a clue what sort of bike i would need.
iv'e pretty much planned my route already and it's mainly road. does this mean i need a road bike, or perhaps a touring bike?
and could you possibly give me a few ideas towards a cheapish bike that would be ideal and not fall to pieces halfway up a hill in scotland.
thanks in advance for any help.
