I should be there some time this evening. I have some business to attend to in Portree first. So as I havn't booked can someone reserve me a tent space with you guys and I will sort it when I get there.
I will be in the vet ambulance as I am still technically doing work on Skye :wink:
I am not sure whether to bring the singlespeed or one of the Stumpies, its been a long time, Pitlochry I think, since I last rode with gears off road. Its only singlespeed or the roadie that ever gets used these days. Stumpies only once or twice a year or so the last couple of years.

Well :D
I'm guessing the reason nobody has posted up yet is they are all totally knackered.
Not only did they do a 50km in heat ,but over a track that proved difficult for walkers never mind cyclists. :shock:
I did the sensible thing and bugged out after about a mile.Personally i know my limits and this was beyond mine,especially on a rigid bike[Though Adrien{Jamiedyer} completed it on his new rigid single speed :oops: ]


So ,as i was at a loss ,i decided to cycle to Portree and back [Total 18miles].
Big mistake :shock:
First hill was a cracker,ending in a blind left hand bend,then a series of up's and downs.
I'd advise anybody wishing to ride that road to not do it.I found it scary as hell,the traffic was passing you at 70+mph and seriously close,the bikers gave me a wide berth 8) 8) 8) Guess they know what its like to be buzzed by high speed traffic,but the majority was just too close :?.

2/3 of the was i had one of my closest shaves with a van overtaking too close,which gave me a hell of a start ,then his trailer passed and i thought i was a gonner.Started thinking of bad thoughts about being killed and had to stop for a while to calm down a bit.
Return journey was not as scary,,well at least no incidents :) .And the first hill is also a cracker :lol: and a long one at that.

Im looking forward myself to seeing the pics and reading the tales,but judging from the riders condition thats likely to be tomorrow

Crazy crazy buggers :shock:
