First the ride planning, then the ride riding, then the ride report writing - the gift that keeps on giving ...
Was feeling good, riding well, had an interesting chat with a Spanish policeman, who had a great sense of humour!!
"I must admit having never done anything like this to say I was more than a little nervous is an understatement ! would I make it, would I break down, crash, get lost, run out of fuel, what if I broke down in Scotland or even worse 50 miles from the finish ! these and many other thoughts rushed around my head."
"I apologised to the lady who woke me up while having an 'Iron Butt Motel' catnap"
"the route up through Glen Coe, Fort William, Inverness and Wick was all new to me"
