Mor Hills, Mor Wind, Mor Skye

I was slightly concerned by a comment, on one of the road cycling forums, concerning the hills of the Skye Mor Cyclosportive route.

"Have you seen the gradient profile? It looks like Jaws' dental records".

Take a look - he's right!

There are two courses to tomorrows event. I've entered the Skye Mor, which at 95 miles is the longer course and will be the furthest I've ridden in a day.

However, if you look at the map alongside, you'll see the route comes close to the start after the first loop around the Trotternish Peninsula.

Cutting across that gap make the course just 45 miles long.

This is the Skye Beag route.

If the weather tomorrow proves as wet and windy as forecast, I might switch at that half-way (ish) point and follow the shorter course.

If it's not fun, there's no point in doing it.

The day after, Gordon and I have tentitvely arranged to do the last bits of filming for the coaching session of DVD-2, but again a lot depends upon the weather.

Which is not good.
