    Not long now until Loch Ness. How’s everyone’s training going? Were well behind due to the weather. Thankfully the indoor trainer has kept me pedalling this spring. Hopefully the weather is good.

    Hideously under-trained here.... Did my back in in October (Slipped disc/Sciatica), so struggling a bitty :sad:

    May come in behind the Broom Wagon at this rate :ohmy:

    Hoping the weather's kind too, we had some serious snow a couple of years back for it...

  6. I have to use a ferry to get to Inverness - gateway to my trips south.

    Few riders from here (Stornoway - Hebridean CC) riding the event.

    WOW!!! By that time last year I don't think I had even got to Fort Augustus, never mind gone up the hill!!! Respect to him, but I bet he wishes he'd slowed down a bit to enjoy the scenery more :tongue:

    Great weather, beautiful scenery and well organised. I might well be back! I wasn't going for an overall time and mainly pootled round with a mate and enjoyed the views. I did however have a dig at the KOM and positioned 110th and happy with that. I thought the hill was quite a toughy. As an excuse I was a wee bit tired having cycled there from Glasgow over the previous two days ^_^ if I had been fresh who knows!
