Distance: 85 miles

Total Distance: 766.5 miles

Weather: Warm and sunny

Bumpy roads and the longest ride to date made for some very sore bottoms.However, Glencoe was stunning. A slow but quite easy climb up to the summit followed by a long winding descent through scenery that just has to be seen to be believed. It looked glorious in the warm sunshine too. A long ride, but a good one. Rob, Woodsy and Dan all feel that the accumulation of all the miles, have made them so much fitter! This is why the journey seems to be getting easier! Also, of course, the slightly less hilly conditions help the overall average speed!

We made such good progress that we had completed the distance by  4:30 pm.
