Christ, it feels like someone's swapped my legs for a geriatrics.
Really enjoyed that, weather was a bit of a mixed bag, first half dry and cool, although the rain started after that and was fairly persistent.
I can see why people enjoy this roadying lark, and it's good to know that my back (and my legs) can deal with nearly 60 miles of riding in a day.
Radek put's on a brave face when he see's the bike Kaiser is loaning him...
For whom the ferry bell tolls
Kaiser tries to unjam his fat sausage fingers from his helmet vent. Keith looks away, can't stand the sight of blood
Radek thanks Kaiser (through gritted teeth) for the loan of 'that' bike
Getting ready to disembark, from L-R: nelly, Radek, Gazz and Keith
Kaiser does his best Tron impression while Mr P fixes his light cycle
Whiting Bay - Kaiser

Mr Panda works on a bike polo move
Whiting Bay - Unleash the tool roll
Keith and nelly after just dropping a Suzuki
Kaiser's best 'none shall pass' impression

Mr P practices more bike polo shapes
Lochranza - the Sandwich Station and Bike Shed. Great food and prices, shame about the midges
So we didn't hang about for long
The other side of the Boglie (spelling?) climb, we stop to let the East Coast midges eat their fill
Kaiser barely contains his excitement upon sighting the longship
Or was it the burst space-hopper and the 'ghost of Velo' tribute bike?
Kaiser figuring out if he can launch the boat and possibly pillage a village before tea
These speak for themselves... shall photoshop later
Me upon hearing the news we've only got 7 miles to go
Reeling in the pack (aye right) after stopping to put my jacket back on
nelly climbing an impossibly steep hill and still smiling about it... check that gradient
Keith, going too slow to completely be in the photo
Got him second time though
Journey's end, Brodick again
GPS stats here...
I forgot to turn it off when we got to Brodick and then doubled back for that bike shop, not that it really matters I suppose...
