I've got an old Trek 1200 road bike circa 1995 with down tube shifters and mostly original components. These days, I mostly ride it on my summer vacation on Martha's Vineyard where most of the riding is on pavement but occasionally I'll want to venture down a sandy road.
I currently have smooth 23 mm tires that I fill to 115 psi. These are terrible on the sandy roads!
Can you recommend tires for a road bike that would do better on sandy roads?
UPDATE: These are sandy roads that cars and mountain bikes would have no problems going down. It is a mixture of packed dirt and shallow sandy areas. Sandy roads are not that long, no more than a mile here and there.
UPDATE2: I bought two of these 700x28 Kenda tires. This worked for the front but was too big for the back. I'm going to return one and get a 700x25 for the back. People on Amazon say these tires run big, so other 28 tires might work on this bike.
