Frequently Asked Questions

What tyre size do you suggest for athe Bright Midnight?

We suggest 40mm gravel tyres. It’s true that there will be a good amount of smooth tarmac but the gravel sometimes can be a bit “rocky” and it’s better to be safe rather than sorry for not completing the route.

Can I ride without front light, since it’s not going to be dark?

No, you can’t ride without a front light. If cloudy or rainy at night, it won’t be enough bright to make you visible. For your safety you have to be visible to other vehicles, plus there are some tunnels where light is necessary. It’s also mandatory to have a high visibility vest, in order to be visible to other vehicles in case of bad weather conditions.

How much will be the amount of gravel roads compared to paved roads?

It will be roughly 60% paved and 40% unpaved.

What temperatures do we have to expect?

Between 0ºC (in the mountains with bad weather conditions) and 28-30ºC (if you’re riding under the sun).

Can you travel by train with a bicycle? What about traveling with a bike in the box?

Yes, you can travel with your bike mounted by buying an additional ticket. You can also travel with a bike in the box/bag and it will be free (counted as a luggage).
