What is the recommended bike for the Super Jambo Grom Pre?

For the Super Jambo Grom Pre 2024, I recommend a well-maintained gravel bike with at least 47 tires. It will be helpful to have some easy climbing gears in the case you are doing the 1000 km. The route can certainly be enjoyed with anything beyond this capability. If you have a choice between a gravel bike and a full-suspension mountain bike, I would recommend something closer to the gravel bike than a full-suss.

1. Rego packs which include goodies for your ride

2. Coupons for meals etc during your ride at various locations
