Re: Ascent feet per mile?

Here's a thought , probably not a good one mind, with a circular route should it be ascent over distance times 0.5 as effectively its half ascent and half descent ?

ft/mile = total ascent / (distance * 0.5)

Or is there a fundamental flaw in my workings?

Edited to correct

Re: Tyres - light soft and supple...

Would the Vittoria Randonneur Pro in 32c be suitable for touring loaded on the Tissington and High Peak trails as well be fine on road ?

I intent to tour with camping gear on a 531ST Longstaff tourer?
