Across Scotland

Not content with riding across Britain in September, I thought a “dry” run would be in order. Between 23 and 30 August, I’m mountain biking across Scotland: I did this ride last year with H&I Adventures, and it was so inspiring that I’m doing it again, with an old schoolmate Iain.

Here are some pictures from last year to show you the kind of scenery you can ride through in North West Scotland – enjoy!
