Amazing scenery. Thanks for taking the time to post pictures.
Bike's pretty cool too.


Thanks! 8)

The weather has been incredible out here to be honest, I only moved from the mainland 15 months ago so I've yet to experience the island at its worst!

Harris is properly beautiful though, and when the sun's out the beaches are second-to-none. The Harris Eagle Observatory and track is maintained by the Trust, and they obviously are keeping on top of things as there are two new wooden bridges that have been installed this last year to make things easier! At the start of the route I came round a corner to be confronted with eight assorted ginger and black Highland cattle just standing there looking bemused on the track which made progress a little 'interesting'... especially as their horns were enormous! :shock:

A couple of the descents were a proper test for a rigid bike though, the forks were demonstrating huge fore-and-aft movement, especially with the added force of applying brakes trying to decelerate a 15 stone man! :oops:

That aside, it's an amazing bike.... with the tubeless tyres being able to run lower than I would normally risk pressures combined with the comfort of the titanium frame and forks it was like riding on a magic carpet! :lol:
