Less than a week to go to The Tour de Ben Nevis

Wet conditions this morning, ideal training for next weeks' event!

With The Tour de Ben Nevis next Saturday today's ride was perfect preparation, wet and cold, exactly what it will probably be like at Fort William next week-end, probably the wettest location in Britain at any time of the year! The event is a loop round Ben Nevis of approximately 70 kilometers with 5 special stages thrown in for good luck. There's also a few water crossings as well and if the rain continues to fall (which it probably will) some of the crossings could be a couple of feet deep or more! Anyway today we did 25 miles over the Pentlands in full wet weather gear and coped reasonably well, so here's hoping it's no worse next week-end!
