a very cool journey

You can tell it is autumn when the first snow's have fallen on the hills and the mountain bike is getting used more than often.

Another little adventure with Heather yesterday - a mere 72km with 1342m ascent, through some of the most spectualar scenery Scotland has to offer.

I forgot my camera but remembered the jelly babies so all was not lost.

Not impressed with Citylink who, on the phone, told me that the buses could take 2 bikes, but on arrival at the depot in Ullapool the driver told us that they could not take bikes unless bubblewrapped or in a box.

The only saving grace was the little bike bus - a dedicated bus service with a bike trailer that runs along the North West coast from Inverness during the summer months.  For information on times, contact D&E Coaches, Inverness.

For once, I don't have a very sore arse but will be spending the afternoon with a scrubbing brush and a can of oil.
