So today marked my first official cycling photography trip. It was just a short cycle from the junction with the A87(T) where the roads heads to Sallachy & Killilan. I headed up the single track road, right to the end of the tarmac surface at Coille-righ in Glen Elchaig, and then returned to the start. A total distance of just under 26 km (16 miles) with a couple of small lumps on the way, but mostly flat (see below). The road surface varies from horribly rough to beautifully smooth (mainly on the private road to Killilan and Glen Elchaig).
It was a beautiful sunny evening and the colours were fantastic as the golden hour approached. I stopped a few times to take some photos with my phone and I'm sure you will agree that this is a special place, well worth a visit on the bike.
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.
