Kingussie to Inverness. This was our first day without rain and no steep ascents – sheer bliss. Beautiful ride and wonderful scenery. We cycled-up through aviemore where we parked-up the bikes, jumped in support vehicles and sped-off up Cairngorm Mountain for some panoramic photos. Carrbridge proved to be quaint and the ride down to Inverness a joy with several high speed descents, though our record speed of 49 mph from a few days ago was not beaten.
Guillaume, caught a second puncture today. We hope there’s not a trend developing.
Ollie Guild, an experienced Track and Sprint Cyclist joined us today. Will be interesting to see how he fairs with our Royal Marine Commando, Patrick….
Special thanks to Rhoda and Hannah for a lovely meal this evening and thanks to Alex for washing-up. They join us for our last few days of our Challenge.
We have only 2 days to go to John O’ Groats.
