    I agree with Alan - turns out all I am interested in is where I am on the table ! Its not often pleasant reading however😧 The age group tables are better though.
  2. https://www.strava.com/activities/1135227572 I rode this route after doing the NC500. I don't remember much about it other than it was a headwind and wet! I didn't stay on the Great Glen route out of Inverness. Went down the east side of Loch Ness on the road. That was a big climb. Looks like I was then on a variant of the route all the way down. Stuck to the east at Loch Oich. I have ridden Invergarry - Fort Augustus on the west side and seem to remember that involved a good climb out of Invergarry. From Laggan on down it was good going , fatigue and weather notwithstanding - check my coupon ! All good fun but obviously do it in the other direction. Something to look forward to after the time of cholera !
  3. Ok - clearly been in England too long - weather obviously not suitable for a big one tmw. Hopefully see you at the weekend.
  4. Am in Glasgow tmw Charlie - you don’t fancy a crack at the Loch Awe route ?
  5. Amazing memories you young fellas have Mr O’Neil ! https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/2653012198 It is long Charlie - even with 10 miles off for the ferries (and about 10000ft Marco ). You could go straight up the main road to Inveraray but I really wouldn’t recommend it. Get an early ferry and enjoy it ! Or do what Richard of Montague and I did and ride out to Portavadie over the Rest first 😳
  6. Yeah that’s the loop we did a few years ago Charlie ( with Marco and Al Fox ). Would be an impressive day out to do the lot !
  7. Hope you are taking Loch Awe route from Lochgilphead Charlie - do not take the then main road ! Head along the track beside the Crinan canal at Ardrishaig. Keep on canal path to Bellanoch then cross canal on B8025, Go through Kilmartin ( good cafe ) and take a right after Kilmartin heading for Ford. Beautiful quiet road along Scotland’s longest freshwater loch, Follow loch Awe and head for Inveraray. Stunning route and plenty of history - look out for Dunnadd ( ancient capital of Dalriada) and the burial mounds at Kilmartin - would love to join you.
  8. All is forgiven Andy. - “How can I leave you again?”
  9. Yeah, well done us - always better to just get out. Nice route Davie and glad Chung made the effort to meet up in Stewarton. Will catch up with the rain dodgers another time !
