Nor by me! But if I were riding that route I'd definitely be on much wider tires. Probably 53 mm or so. Really makes a difference in soft stuff, doesn't seem to have any downside at all.

That is pretty much exactly what I expected! :lol:

Even so, I expect by scouting out the route really thoroughly you could escape the bonus miles. What size tires were you using?
