    Hubby has entered the Etape Caledonian Cycle race in May 2010. We are going to take the van up there and tour the area after - that's if he's got any energy left after cycling through 81 miles of lochs & mountains!
    Just wondered if anyone else would be doing this or spectating - perhaps we could meet up?

    It's not a race, it's a 'challange' (sic) - http://www.etapecaledonia.co.uk/index.html

    It's a beautiful and scenic route but there's one short climb of any significance (Schiehallion), so hubby should have plenty of energy left. Just hope there isn't a carpet tack attack fom the locals this year..

    I should say it's the first "challenge" of this sort that he's done. He took up cycling about 2 years ago when he turned 58. When he says "do you want to go for a cycle ride" I say no cos I know it'll be about 30 miles!! When we go to Spain he rides 100K in midday heat with a group of Ex profesional riders who are all over 60 and well fit!!
