6.45am. With morning mist obscuring the peak of Ben Nevis, aches & pains from yesterday’s hard ride are quickly forgotten as the boys are ready to face the third day on the road. A trip far more challenging than any of us dared to imagine.
Making great time from Fort William through the stunning scenery of Glencoe, today’s ride is helped by sun & lighter winds….or so we thought.
Spirits are up as we progress further south towards Glasgow when the wind picks up while crossing the highest peaks. The fierce gusts slow everyone down to a snails pace. At this point Jason decided it would be a perfect time to take a power nap in the bushes at the roads edge….and nobody was going to argue!
A further few hours along the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond the wind died down & we found the holy grail of cycling…a downward sloping hill! The final 25 miles were achieved in record time, getting back to the hotel after 11 hours cycling.
A night in Greenock awaits!
