Re: What bike do I need?

Hi DocB, thanks for replying
It's a group of around 100 and there are support vehicles. the charity is Macmillan Cancer support. The ride is over 4 days and the first 3 days are around 130km each day with the 4th being 90km, I'm riding primarily with one of my friends in memory of his dad and he's the same as me, not a cyclist as such but he has a hybrid that he commutes on although he's never taken on anything like this before. We've been told by the guys organising this that everyone kind of slots into groups depending on how they want to ride, as quickly as possible or just getting it done with no time frame in mind, I'm not looking to break any records but I would like to ride it at a reasonable pace
I'm unsure what I'll do once the ride is over really, I've trained solely in the gym so far but I used to like cycling years ago so I'd like to buy something which I can continue to use on a more leisurely basis afterwards and I've set myself a budget of £500 but not knowing whether that will get me something suitable have a little more if neccessary
