"As usual, a great, quality product from Altura. They look and feel good. When choosing, be aware that they are realistically sized - no need to order bigger than you would expect (as you have to do with some other manufacturers)."
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight

The Land Cruiser is a Kevlar Guard Puncture Protected trekking tyre, ideal for cruising. The rolling tread is superb on pavements, yet it's diamond textured side lugs afford plenty of grip on light loose terrain.

"Bought these tyres to replace standard knobbly ones on my son's mtb. They definitely made a difference by reducing the rolling resistance when on tarmac and concrete. He noticed the difference immediately. We tackled around 140 miles on the C2C route without any problems - there was no lack of grip during the downhill, wet sections."
Pros: Great Value

 No Excuses Sportive (Road)
No Excuses Sportive (Road)
To kick off your Sportive season UK Cycling Events are offering something truly special, a new concept in sportive riding... ! A completely Free of Charge Sportive! Yes... that’s not a typo it is Free!
 

Sportive entry - can I change the distance?

If I enter a Wiggle sportive for a particular distance, is it possible to change the distance to be undertaken on the day of the event (eg due to change of circumstances)? In particular, I am considering whether to try the longer or shorter route at the Wiggle No Excuses sportive,

Uploading routes

Is it possible to upload routes onto the device and follow them during the ride? All Edges have that functionality.
No. This model allows you to upload a route onto your PC so you can see where you have been. However you can' t follow a route from it because it doesn't have a mapping feature built in.
