We tanked it around this route. It was a cold but dry day. There was fresh snow on the summits and blizzards in valleys all around but somehow they missed us. The ride had a mix of wide track, singletrack, fast descending, techy moorland descending, massive rock slabs and river crossings. The final 10km is the hardest despite looking like small climbs on the profile, they are steep and keep coming. We got to Taynuilt with enough time to eat everything in the cafe twice followed by a waffer thin mint, and then go to the pub.


Be warned - book your bikes onto the train when doing this route to save yourself a 25mile road ride.
