Sorry,

Meant to say, Cycle earlier last Month we stayed at Torridon YH.
There is still a lot of work to do at the back end after Applecross climb. A series of small descents followed by sharp short climbs.
Good Fun. A 4h drive from Stirling.

Thanks all for the interest so far.
I'll leave it another week or so, and then look into it a bit more.
Happy to chat to people about it at the Christmas bash

Having visited Applecross many times and ridden the pass six times now in all weathers (high winds are the scariest!) I can thoroughly recommend it as an outing. A great place to stay is Hartfield House hostel in Applecross itself and about a twenty minute walk (or 5 minute ride) from The Applecross Inn!! Stayed there several times and facilities are first class including the kitchen if people want to cook. Besides the pub, there is another good restaurant in the walled garden of Applecross House.

4th May may not be possible for me as I might be going to Mallorca.

Hi all

We have been thinking about suggesting the early May bank holiday weekend, as it gives people the chance to stay up there for longwr if they fancy it.

That would be Saturday 4th May.

People could travel up on the Friday night and just stay for the Saturday, or stay for longer (we will probably look to stay till the Monday).

It is the weekend that some people are going to Majorca (I think). If I understand correctly that’s the Sunday, so this will be perfect last minute training for the Puig!

What do people think of that as an idea?

Neil & myself would be interested if dates worked. We’ve done it twice before & I’m sure last time into a 30mph headwind I said ‘never again’ but hey ho... why not!!

I'm interested. Know of a large bunkhouse 13 miles north of Applecross, which I can look into if you wish. I've stayed there. Its not posh, but cosy kitchen and lots of bedrooms with bunks. Sleeps around 20.

Myself & Oz Petale are also interested in this, again providing date suits. Was supposed to do it last year but never got round to it.

Yes, I might be interested in an Applecross trip in 2019. Just signed up for Etape Caledonia, but otherwise pretty flexible. Paul Milligan

Good one Chi
Whilst we might want to do the climb at different paces, if people want to carry on and do the loop then we would do that as a group (or a number of groups if appropriate).
At this stage I would just encourage people who may be interested to say so, and we can then work out paces etc. later.

One of my bucket list items and I'd be interested in joining yourselves for the stay but not for the ride. I'll go at my diesel engine pace if you don't mind!

Hi all

As winter sets it, what else to think about other than cycling trips for the summer next year when the weather is (slightly) nicer.

So, Helen and I have been talking about arranging a trip to ride the Bealach na Ba. We had meant to fit it in this year, but since we didn't arrange anything it never happened. So we are looking to start thinking about it now so we can get it in the diary.

Would anyone else be interested in coming along? It would probably involve staying nearby the night before, but some people may prefer the stay there two nights. We would be looking to do the BnB / Applecross / Shieldaig loop, but variations to that are possible.

We can talk logistics once we have an idea of who may be interested.

At the moment just looking for indication of possible interest. Happy to chat to people about it during AGM on Tuesday.

I have put this in road biking, but I am pretty sure there are also off-road options too.

Cheers, Chris and Helen
