    Well, after over 400 miles since yesterday morning, I think I can safely say that the 21 year old Alp is fairly sorted. Took a 120 mile run over to the Red Squirrel camp site at Glencoe Saturday morning and met up with a fellow Alp rider.

    We them covered around 150 miles of small dirty roads and some forest tracks before dinning at the Clachaig Inn.

    Said our farewells early Sunday morning, the man heading home via Glencoe and me heading for home via Kinlochleven loop, Forts Bill & Augustus and Inverness
