I am new to riding cross. I wont race - just use it as a different way to keep fit.

I weigh 190lbs & I am running Vredestein Campos. Can anyone recmmend a good tyre pressure based on my weight? I will mainly be riding fireroads but I may get a bit more adventurous.

at 190 I'd keep the psi on the higher side. I'm about 230 and I run my clinchers at 50-70 depending on terrain. You will bottom your tire to rim in the low 40's. I pinch flat everytime I lower the pressure.
going to Tufos.
