The Ride - Day 10 (18th May '06)

Loch Dornoch viewpoint.

We have been blessed with better weather today. Although it drizzled until we parted company with Loch Ness, thereafter the sun shone. On the way we climbed the steepest hill of the whole trip at Drumnadrochit, a real ballbreaker. We had our lunch at Dingwall on the Cromarty Firth and then continued, passing both seals and oil rigs. The afternoon ride was picturesque as we headed for our final destination at Bonar Bridge.

The end feels close now but there is still 120 miles to go.

Loch Ness, no sign of the monster! (Ed: He's behind you!)

That comment of yours which reads, "the end feels close"; now Steve, before you left you said that cycling was a tiring activity and you would most probabaly have to mend your ways and conserve energy whilst on this massive task of yours. All I can say is, if you carry like this, you'll not have the energy to finish. I know those old trousers of yours are a bit tight, but just leave it alone!!!
