What inflatable craft for Cannock?

[/STWMode]

More seriously, is it worth putting something mud friendly tyres on (Pana Spikes or Trailrakers) or sticking with the Splashbacks on the grounds that conditions will be such that it actually won't actually make that much difference, especially when sat in the tea shop[*]?


[*] bringing sensible sized (non-seasonal) cake with me.

I only have two tyres. One for the back and another for the front. They will be the same ones as I use for the rest of the year. I think I may have last year's mud on them too.

If you have two tyres that are round then they will be better than my rims and tyres.
Cannock is sandy and gritty. With some slippery stones. Not heavy boggy mud.

Don't forget £3.50 for the car park.

Well, I've just finished the 'bicycle' - bicycle in the loosest sense of the word as in classic Cannock style, the brakes will not work and the gear levers work in the opposite direction to your normal thumbie.

It has mudguards. I want to stay relatively less muddy than say, a bog snorkeller or a rugby player.

*EDIT: I've also re-enforced everything to cope with the lardy arse riding it.
