The Ride - Day 9 (17th May '06)

Today was a long one. 96 miles and our arrival in the Highlands. We started with an 8 mile climb (which was nice!) and then a hurtling descent along the shores of Loch Awe and then on to Loch Linnhe. We stopped for lunch at Ballaculish and then continued on the A82 to Fort William. We saw the tip of Ben Nevis and continued on before taking a few photos at the Commando memorial at Spean Bridge. Just another tough 12 miles to go before we arrived at the Youth Hostel on Loch Lochy. No telly to watch the footie but our leaders cooked us up a Scottish treat of Haggis in Whisky sauce served with Neaps and Tatties. Could it be Porridge for breakfast per chance?

Been loving reading your progress so far... and you're so nearly there, well done.

Just wanted to also mention that 2 guys I know are walking the Lejog starting July 1st ( and they too have been reading your blog.

Nice one!

Steve, don't know much about this Ben bloke but if I was you, I'd just keep my eyes down and carry on regardless.
As for the telly Steve, why don't you just get tickets on the old black market, charge it all against the company account and get yourself a box and a meal with a few drinks.
Don't watch it on the telly Steve, you'll only be disappointed. what's the odds on 2:1 with Sol getting the first goal?
