.......Fancy this now :P

Another approx 60km ride on rough tracks plus potentially BRUTAL river crossing.

Fort William/Kinlochleven/Spean Bridge almost entirely offroad. No bogs :lol:

Jamie wants to do it :D

Any more?

Some pics here.....

Might be interested depends on dates and if I can be transported. I fancy a bit more SS fixie riding since SSEC but please can we use old money distances, 36 miles sounds more palatable than 60k :lol:

Would also be tempted, have a SS for the task. Need plenty of time to earn a pass.

route info.......

sorry about map quality, but you get the idea. Maybe save it to your PC and resize so you can see better :wink:

Best to do this after a dry week as river crossing is genuinely awkward in wet conditions :D

Can start/finish anywhere along route. Campsites at Fort William and Roybridge which would be ok.

There's a bothy on the eastern Mamores section.

I'll speak with Mrs Panda then suggest some dates :D

I'm in! Bigger version of map from Mr P's book... Orange line is original route, green is alternate start along W Highland Way from Mr P, plus dipping into Leannachan Forest at Spean Bridge - There are a lot of options in the forest, pretty much a follow your nose deal, since these are the Witch's Trails from 10UTB (map here).

Click map below for big version:

Also easier/bad weather alternatives nearby if needed..... :P
