Solo 17.5 miler tonight in the Pentlands

The start of the climb up Castlelaw

Round the first bend and still going up!

Over the gate and getting steeper!

Only about another half mile of climbing to go!

Looking back up to the top of the climb.

An interesting ride tonight, I met a guy in the middle of nowhere who needed two sticks to walk because his knees were so bad with arthritis, he said he was considering getting a bike as he thought it might be a bit easier on the legs! Then I met up with a girl who had recently qualified as a vet and had an interesting chat with her till we went our separate ways, no two nights are the same when you're out on the hills!
