    Best bike for infrequent touring?

    A commuter / leisure rider who tours infrequently needs a new bike. For most use a hybrid is best (£500-800). For touring you're probably talking £1000+ for a spa tourer or something from a mainstream source. Which is best to get? A hybrid could be a lighter and potentially faster option for...
