Bridge of Orchy 18th Aug




The good news is we've cycled over the Glen Coe mountain pass, the bad news is its getting late and we're just stopping for lunch at Bridge of Orchy. We have good excuses though, despite it being very physically demanding, we got 3 punctures in 3 miles, all on my bike, and now i've lowered the pressure on my last tube and have been cycling standing up for about 10 miles, just to minimise risk of the back going a fourth time! On the way down the 2 mile, 1 in 20 slope into bridge of orchy i was horrified to see my front brake caliper assembly come flying over the handlebars as i was trying to slow down!! All in all a pretty rough day so far, and i really need a good bike shop.
