Tire size and type

Martin from Chesapeake on 7/23/2022 6:42:59 PM:
What would you recommend for tire size and type for the canal trail...riding the full distance.

Bill in Houston from Houston on 7/29/2022 10:18:14 AM:
We have ridden all of our trail miles on 2.0 or 2.2 inch tires, with no flats. Many people would recommend narrower tires, but then end up with flats.

We cycled 3 days on 28mm road tires (90 pounds pressure) with paniers on our problem on gravel, stones, etc. Our bikes have Armadillo/Gatorskin / kevlar tires (you can still get a flat if you run over a nail or sharp glass).

Rode 2x with Schwalb Marathons 700/35. No flats both trips
