Am new to road riding but am long time MTB. Recently completed the Mancheter 100 mile ride on the aforementioned MTB. Have recently aquired a pretty cool road bike and fancy training for a run down to Bath from My home in Warrington (180 miles). Anyone any experience of doing that run or can offer any tips much appreciated. Others must have done it as it looks as though you get on the A49 and don't stop. One way, return by road or rail.
