Continental Touring Plus tires

Hi All, I finally was able to put some miles on these tires that I'd installed in the winter. I chose the 32 mm size as I don't load up more than 20 lb., 30 lb. the most so far.

I rode one of my favorite charity rides on Sunday which features, using that word loosely, many different road surfaces including a short section that mimics cobblestone. The handling is more lively than with the Panaracers and, for the most part, is a comfortable tire that doesn't seem to suck energy. Combined weight difference between old and new is only 200 grams BTW. Overall I'm pleased.

One unrelated item is that there were more children on the ride than I've seen in the past. I hope than number increases in the future.

Brad
