    “Unless you have legit thorn protection, it might not be worth riding the last couple miles up the canyon.”
    I’m wondering what you mean by this… we’ve got some Rock ‘N Roads with tubes… would that be enough protection?
    If not, what would you consider as adequate protection?

    Some of the heavier duty touring and MTB tires have “puncture protection” which can save you from goathead hell. It’s not a fail safe, but standard tires won’t offer much/any protection which can result in dozens of simultaneous punctures.

    Examples are Continental X-King ProTection Tires, Continental Touring Plus “Breaker”, etc.

    Hope that helps!
