The Devils Staircase.....and beyond...

A week-end of riding at Glencoe and the Nevis Range at Fort William, this was the start of our climb in Glencoe up the Devils Staircase.

Halfway up the Devils Staircase and already having to shed clothes, hells teeth it's October, and we're in Scotland, for Gods sake.....

This stone on a cairn at the summit had "like me on facebook" written on it, cant even escape the social media in the heart of the Highlands!

Bob has the first puncture of five that were suffered between him and Mark!

Blackwater dam and a flagrant breach of the law...but how the hell else were we gonna get to the other side?

Slightly knackered before the next big climb.

2nd last puncture of the day about a mile from the car on the final descent, Mark managed another one with about 400 yards to go but walked the final bit!

A terrific week-end biking in Glencoe and then at Fort William in unbelievable weather, Scotland at its best, why cant we have more of this?!!
