I think the problem has been there has been so much on this year, and no-one really took ownership of the ride as this would be a ride no-one has done before which is a bit daunting and risky.

Are you talking about when we were babies or now as adults? If the latter I need both to survive.

Its my very poor attempt at a analogy
if I said 'spoon fed' you'd probably get
it better. Trail centres V Wilderness :?


But I'll stick with the old NHS slogan "Breast is Best" natural :wink:

Looked at this - BB/ Strathcarron on tarmac (c class rd) to Croik, Strath Cuileannach to Duag Bridge (bothy :D ) then Strath Mulzie to Glen Achall and on to Ullapool....that it?

There's also a bothy at Knockdamph (285954) if needed. Bothies handy for shelter rather than o/night stay :wink:

Don't suppose you fancy October .......

:D

No, probably right.



Poured over maps this morning and was drawn to this.

Approx Six Miles of Uncertainty in the middle between Duag Bridge and Glen Achall (The Walk of Pain :shock: ) - haven't found any reference to cycleability of that section yet (kids have moved me book)

I could be persuaded to do this before Xmas, but suspect September may be too soon. Will think.

EDIT: Feck it - I'll do September

So anyone still up for a mad autimn jaunt, regardless of weather :? ? One day there - one day back. Bothy (Knockdamph) for shelter about 13 miles from the Ullapool end :idea:

thereal - do you need to tag it onto the Bootstock weekend or are you allowed off the island again for another date? :lol:
