    Inverness was clouded in a really heavy fog last Sunday morning.
    My knee is feked due to an old moto x injury, been working from home most of last week. My bones are seizing up, mis spent youth :(
    Anyways, rolled the big bavarian beast out in the driveway, managed to get on eventually, headed off up North for a bit of, what I hoped was a little sunshine.
    Got as far as 5 miles past Garve, wow, different world. :clapping:
    Here as some photies of me sitting on the bike

    As I couldn't get off :D

    Got to the village itself, only to find,horror of horrors, that the camp site I set out to look at in the village is no more. :eek:
    All that is left is a pile of crushed concrete, bricks with a very empty pub across the road. Bugger

    Oh well, got back home, eventually prised myself off the seat , circa 170 miles in the best scenery possible, with an empty road in front of me.
    Brilliant
    Hope you enjoy the pics with no bike :ride:

    Good for you for getting out on your bike. Nice photos too.

    Me? I was in Bike Marshal mode this last Saturday providing cover for (part of) an extreme endurance event - 250 Km in 24 hours!

    We covered the 2nd cycle leg.

    The 250 Km is broken down into a 22 Km run (starting at 5 AM), 15 Km kayak, 100 Km cycle, run up and down a mountain, another cycle of 68 Km and finally a marathon. And these loonies pay for the privilege. Madness.

    Well done you for throwing yer old bones onto the bike for what looks like an excellent ride.

    Shame you couldn't get off the bike and enjoy the views a bit more o_O Nice pictures though - thanks for sharing.

    Rest up, do wot the medics tell you and, all things being equal, we'll be boulder bashing round the lanes near Dent next month :D

    Talk soon

    Nice one John, I was out last Sunday and Sunday just gone and I'll be out this Sunday. Loving getting into my riding again. Weather permitting I might hit the Lakes this Sunday, we'll see. :)
