would a mt bike with slicks be ok for this and a 10 yr old be to slow for this run?


Bike - yes fine

10YO - tricky Gazz - 60miler and into short days and potentially iffy weather. Not so much slow as stamina I think. You know what he's like though - think of Arran loop but perhaps slightly more hilly................plenty of which are down :D

Not easy to bail from once part way round either :?


Checked map :lol:

Actually there is a bail out point if things get iffy. Can veer off at Bridge of Balgie and take route back to Killin, total distance approx 25/30miles.......

Could be handy if weather sh!te :D
