Cycling the South Downs Way on a gravel bike!?

Hey there!

I’m after some advice; I had planned to cycle the SDW in May in a day, sleep in Eastbourne and cycle back. I appreciate this is a tough challenge, but I’m used to this sort of thing. What I’m not sure about if my bike of choice. I’m plannig to do it on a Kinesis Tripster AT but I’m yet to purchase appropriate tyres. 

 

I was wondering a)if it’s silly idea to carry this out on a gravel bike as most people seem to use Hardtails and b) I’m after tyre advice; size of wheel, size of tyre, brand etc. 

 

Thanks  1
