So will this be singlespeedable, or are gears recommended?

My SS hardman of steel training program seems to have degenerated into push the bike up anything with a slope and stop to eat lots of peanut butter and digestive biscuits at the top.

On the plus side, first weekend in yonks without getting a bloody pinch flat. My technique it be smoooooov.


I'll be riding a single speed, probably the only complete bike i'll have so dont have a choice really :lol:

I'm no bothered but I'm not sure what I'm not bothered about ?
Are we talking about when we hit or depart from Arran or what because as a ferry is involved I think being a wee bit bothered might be wise :roll:

:roll: what were trying to communicate is that we aren't bothered what ferry we get, furinstance it could be the first ferry and it wouldn't be a problem. But if your coming from teuchter land you may not be able to make that one etc. So logistically, do you need a particular boat? Or can we say the first ferry?

The Sunday service first Ferry is 0945 which is fine by me as I am now planning to come across to your hoose Klaus on Sunday morning. Should an earlier ferry exist I think it unlikely I'd make that. Only way I could be available earlier is to travel across on Saturday and wait in Brodick for you lot.

Sorry if I'm a little slow but I do not practically live on this site and quickly loose the thread on conversations. :lol:
