That’s me now climbed 3 Munros out of 282 so only 1.06% complete! Hoping if the weather let’s me, I’ve do one more in September. Doubt, I will ever make it up all of them! But would be nice to do at least 5% to 10% of them!

Job done, we both climbed Ben Nevis, which is the which is the highest mountain in the British Isles!! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level!!! We could not have had a better day for it!! Could see for miles and miles at the top!

I would say that doing Ben Nevis, is right up there with doing the End to End cycle!

And just to show that we really did it! The route we took can be seen @ www.strava.com/activities/1088565730.

That’s me now done 48,000.3 miles of cycling, since April 2003! Which is a hell of a long way! Should get that to over 50,000 miles before the end of the year!!

I will leave you, with some of my favourite cycling photos!

That truly was a totally amazing cycle! Reminds me, why I love cycling so much! Just a great way to see amazing scenery, much better than being in a metal box!

Of course for scenery, you can’t get much better than Scotland!!! Also can tell just how much fun, I was having! Since I ended up doing the longest cycle of 2017 so far! Ended up doing 63.5 miles!

Was also good fun doing route, that I’ve not done since August 2009, when I did the End to End cycle!

You can check out the full route and stats from the cycle @ www.strava.com/activities/971062599.

I will now leave you with some photos from the cycle!!!

Had a great day in Edinburgh with my older bother Douglas. We also went to Edinburgh Castle! No idea, when I last went!

Just so glad, I am a Historic Scotland member, don’t think, I would want to pay £17! Also still think that Stirling Castle, is way better!!!
