"Let our people travel light and free on their bicycles...A [wo]man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles." --Edward Abbey ====================================== .

Quick dip in the middle of a sixty mile day in the saddle. On our second day, we cycled from Callander to Pitlochry. This has been the most beautiful day by far, as our path took us along multiple lochs & castles and the weather was sublime. After a long hilly ride, I submerged myself while Steph enjoyed wading into the chilly northern water (most people were wearing wetsuits!)

Here is an example of the stunning scenery and rocky forest roads we traversed to get to Callander. Fortunately, I have an all terrain partner! It's also worth mentioning that despite its small wheels and lack of suspension, the Brompton is a remarkably capable off road machine. We never had a single tube puncture because of rough terrain. ====================================== #noedit #nofilter #ourparks #offroad #modernoutdoors #earthfocus #sunsets #scotland #bicycletouring #bromptonmafia #bromptonlicious #bromptontour #findyourpark #worldbybike #highlandcollective #gonorth #forceofnature #radgirlslife #adventurebybike #cicloturismo #bicicletta #travelstoke #exploretocreate #outsideculture #landscapevideo #landscapes

The days are radiantly long in the great north. This was a particularly beautiful but tiring part of our 50 mile first day. We rode through Loch Lomond National Park and enjoyed the scenery, but also struggled over miles of rough forest roads. This picture was taken around 8pm, while we were still ten or so miles from our destination. ===================================

We've recently embarked upon our first long distance bike touring adventure. After reading how Scotland has been investing millions in new bike infrastructure, we decided to tackle the 215 mile "Lochs and Glens North" route from Glasgow to Inverness. We are want to spend our money in places which support cycling and low carbon transportation solutions. We also took the trip for Steph's dad Steve who has long talked about bike touring Scotland (he's 66 years old this year and still going strong on his many bikes!). We are all riding Brompton folding bicycles which are very easy to bring on airplanes and trains, and offer a fantastic front touring bag for nearly all of our gear. Over the next few days we will be posting the highlights from the tour. ======================================
