This morning I headed north to Torridon for a short cycle up the glen to Kinlochewe and back. I wanted to try and get back before the forecast rain, so decided to only go as far as Kinlochewe, having originally thought about going up to the viewpoint down Glen Docherty to Loch Maree. To be honest, my gears were slipping a bit (which I later found out was because my cassette had worked loose), and the view would not have been worth the effort in this weather. So, on the way back I popped down to Loch Clair for these shots of the hills and the pinewoods.
The total distance of the ride was 33.16 km, averaging just over 20 km/hour. The profile below shows a steady climb up the glen and then down to Kinlochewe, and vice versa on the way back, nothing too strenuous.
I am an enthusiastic cyclist who suffers from being overly large, making the pleasure of cycling somewhat challenging. Hopefully, through combining my interest in cycling with my photography I will get fitter AND produce some decent images.
