Will the Scottish Highlands be flat?
I got in a good 115 km (71.8 mile) training ride. It failed in that it doesn't match the expected terrain of my tour. Also, the bike was free of all the weight of panniers and top bag. Still, fitness is what's the most important. So, in that respect, riding 115 km today is a good indication that all is still a go for a 31 May flight to Edinburgh.
Yesterday I checked for the train tickets. Scottish Rail is having some issues getting their spring / summer schedule finalised. So, instead of bookings being possible 12 weeks prior to the trip, they''re now only possible 9 weeks prior. My reminder is adjusted accordingly.
