I understand the route is set,and everybody kind of knows what they're doing.
Why the kingshouse?
why not the clachaig
Better food,better beer,better scenery,less midgies, :lol:
Not too sure how much further on it is though :? ,but its also much closer to the Glen Etive turnoff
must admit ,we usually drive between the two :oops: ,so it could be an extra 10 miles or so.


The 'kingy' :x
Their toilets :shock: ive seen better in a disused pub in the Gorbals :x

And at the Clachaig ,theres less chance of bumping into the dreaded Jimmy Saville :wink:

For the evening meal front I was just going to bring a pasta ready meal - can be eaten cold if needed and you can use the cardboard outer for kindling :)

I don't mind where we eat lunch Dyna... unless it is further away :)

Tum..te tum.... :roll:

Dyna - Now then, Now then, Now then :D - The Clachaig would add approx 20 mile round trip on the A82 Trunk Road whilst the Kingy is pretty well at the Glen Etive turn off .
For our purposes, quickish lunch, the Kingshouse is better placed although the Clachaig certainly scores during their October Beer & Musicfest :D

Panniers v Rucsac - hmmmmm - I'm still debating that one :wink:

jingle, jingle, jingle..........

I might be needing a bit of transport help with my bike.
My mate wants me to drop it off to his house on thursday,Its just that room when you have two dogs is at a premium
It probably would work no problem but ill have to partly dismantle the front end then he'll pack it in the car,leave it there overnight :shock:
Its just i dont want to get there and find he's moved/damaged something through not knowing bikes.Preventing me from riding
Unlikely but if it can be avoided then that great.
Plus it affords us more room :?

If theres room in Gazz's car or anyone else near me in Glasgow i could drop it off to them
I'd feel happier leaving it in the hands of another cyclist 8)

Mate has just phoned.Something about the bank withdrawing his overdraft.He's had to cancel at the last moment,therefore it seems i must too.I cant get up there for 10.30am and after the return trip from Kingshouse i'd have nowhere to go,or be able to camp or any of the stuff ive planned



f**k :x
