20 miles on the bike on Boxing Day started things off. The gears on my currrent bike are shockingly badly indexed and I really need to get that sorted asap, it made the trip a bit more harsh than it needed to be. The route took me from Inverness past Culloden battlefield and the Viaduct. It's 10 miles of almost continous uphill and hard graft, fortunately the wind was behind me most of the way up which helped.....
....However the wind going against me on the way back made life difficult and I ended up pedalling most of the way when I had hoped for an easy cruise back down to Inverness! Oh well, it's not training if it doesn't hurt!
