Still got my wee car but might get shot, anyhoo it'd collapse with exhaustion long before it reached Fort William. Thus a Fort William start would be good for me as i can reach it by train. I'm not up for a Sunday ride though :wink:

Checking in on this, looks good, date dependant though, would be good to avoid organised rides.

Right folks - before I start throwing dates around, do you want a Saturday only ride, or a Saturday /Sunday with camp/bunkhouse option, like Skye?

: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.....

Will try to get map up soon.

^^^ this is 63 miles not 65km as after reading this, we're thinking of doing this perhaps late June/early July. Looks like good fun!! :wink:

No it isnae :P

The route shown on map is approx 60km.

However the route described in the photo link is different - they started and finished at Glencoe, making a longer trip of 60 miles - we're not suggesting that one unless folks of course wanna.................. :D

Yet again you'd better remove me from list of potential participants, i've got way too much on at work to knacker myself with one of these epics :roll:
