.......... is there a shorter route we can take if it looks like a washout?
Might be the sensible idea,looks like it will be a harsh winter
We'll be fine Dyna, the ride is the same day as the next oban fireworks display, we'll get enough heat from that in 60 seconds to last the whole day.
Bad weather options: in reality we can't cut the route short once we're on it, so the only option would be to turn back if things get out of hand, by which time its too late anyway
There is shelter at halfway point so I might take small stove for hot soup
If we make it that far we should be ok
If the hail/sleet/rain is horizontal at dawn and shows no sign of abating we have the option to ride somewhere else, laze in, or go upstairs to the pub
Think I have a pair of those waterproof socks somewhere.............
