Recreational riding and tyre choices

Some cyclists will just ride road or single trails. Both require a specialised sports bike. The majority though just want to get from A to B, whether it be for commuting or recreational riding. Recreational riding is like recreational walking – it is done for relaxation and well-being. It is not competitive and not about going fast. It is the normalisation of cycling as something everybody can do. You don’t need to be young or fit to do it.

Fat and off-road tyres can make a city bike better suited for recreational riding in Canberra and its many gravel trails.
