Bike Miles: Zero
Disasters: Zero 🙂
Day one is the drive to Inverness. The plan is to stay overnight in Inverness and get the 7am train to Thurso and the ferry to Stromness for night one under canvass.
06:15am woke to the sound of rain. Not just a light summer shower but “biblical” rain and a small river running down the road. Not a good start…
09:30am more “biblical” rain around Lockerbie – I think we saw Noah’s Arc on the south bound carriageway ! After that the clouds seemed to lift & the drive to Inverness was pleasent with only sporadic “normal” rain…
After checking in to the Travelodge we went out to Gorthleck to see our friend Phil Mitchell for the evening. Good to catch up with Phil & we had a lovely meal at the Whitebridge hotel.
Not exactly an exciting cycle touring day but no disasters 🙂
