Skye Cycling

At 30 miles, this was a short, spectacular ride around the northern tip of the Isle of Skye.

The first two photos show the climb through the amazing scenery of the Quiraing. Our campervan had wheezed a little when we first drove this road, yet it was surprisingly easy on bikes. There was even a mobile snack-bar at the top.

A long, swooping descent to a cafe in Uig, before a climb and tour around the top of the island.

Apart from a moment when a bus tried overtaking me on a blind bend, on a single-track road then, realising a vehicle was coming the other way, simply pulled in to the left, sqashing me into the side of the road. Nice... Thanks Rapsons. I have a photo of your crap driver.

At least it wasn't as bad as Fiona's stories of Cycling Hell.
