Well, i did 30 miles thismorning (furthest so far) , mixed flat, hills etc, my back and shoulders were crying out after 27 :(, dont think i could manage 60 miles, that 30 was non stop though and going pretty hard.

I was bit worried about doing Arran for the same reasons Mark - turns out we stopped often enough for it not be a problem. I think getting off the bike and being able to stretch and walk around makes all the difference.

I had only cycled 50 miles before I did the etape's 81, the 81 was easier than the solo 50, you'll be fine mark, besides we can bail early and sit in the pub if nessecary :wink:
