Re: Something Welsh for summer - Big Bear.

What would be the best bike for the route?
Will a gravel bike with 650b 47s be ok? Or will my rigid 29er be better?

Down trousers?

Mrs B is a cold sleeper, so invariably had a down jacket and hood as well as a nice down bag. She has little down booties but the key to warm feet is warm legs...so does anyone use down trousers? Anyone used the budget ones from Aliexpress etc? Any feedback appreciated
Diolch
