Just as I congratulate myself for getting back in the saddle somebody rides up to put your efforts into perspective!!
I puffed my way up and over Peat Inn yesterday and back! Invited to a BBQ in Cupar to counter balance the calorie intake it seemed wise to take the trusty Raleigh for company. Of course you compensate by eating twice as many burgers!! Nice ribs Neil.
Anyway I don’t recommend Stella for hydration purposes but I made it home.
A cancellation meant I had a room to sell so I was delighted when a lone cyclist rode up looking for a room. Guido had ridden from ‘near Braemar’. Well I have known some parties taking a whole day from Braemar and that is with the aid of a combustion engine!
So it turns out Guido is on a proper cycle tour of Great Britain and Ireland. As he rolled up in Crail on Dy 60 he had clocked up 5,000 kilometres and planned a further 1,500!!
You can follow his blog www.gb-tour.com You don’t have to read German, the photos tell the tale! (yes he has time to stop, take photos and write a blog)
Interesting fact: he has had two slow punctures in 5,000km!
