CTC supporter David Eelbeck and friends tell us about their epic adventure from Aberdeen to Ardnamurchan.
Cycling from Aberdeen to Ardnamurchan

"This bike ain’t gonna ride itself" we told ourselves, as the front wheels bathed in the cool North Sea for the photo posing. We then discovered our bike shoes were made of King Canute uppers as the pause for an extra photograph brought the tide in a tad further than intended.

A push back up the sand to the breezy Aberdeen promenade and we were off. 260 miles to go. On the scale of epic adventures, Shackleton, Fiennes, Beaumont or Cracknell would view this as an amusing warm up.
