Day 12 Perth to Aviemore. 80 miles total 713
An extreme day. 5 hours of climbing against at headwind to get to the Pass of Brander and when I got there it was snowing, blowing and as I descended it turned tosleet, hail and rain. I had a real strugglebut managed to get to Aviemore. Hands so cold Icouldn't change gear and when I stopped I was unable tmy undo the clasp on my cycle helmet. Hope tomorrow is better.
Day 13. Aviemore to Golspie. 76 miles total 789 miles
Slocd summit faced me in the morning 1328 feet but my starting point this time was Aviemore and there was precious little climbing needed and then it was downhill to Inverness and on over the Black Isle and the flat bit. Cold at the start but warmed up at lower altitude. Now within sight of my ultimate goal. I've been eating anything that doesn't move for two weeks and still my weight has come down. It'll be hard to suppress this appetite when I stop cycling.
Day14 Golspie to John o Groats 72 miles. Total 861 mile
Finished but the weather was less than perfect with wind which was gusty and hail. This part of Scotland is flat but very exposed and it was difficult to keep the bike on a straight line at times. Berriedale hill is steep and long but after two weeks of conditioning it didn't proe too much of a problem.
I've learned a lot during the past two weeks such as "know exactly where the key is before locking your bike".
