on cycling 50 miles in a week

50 miles in a week isn’t much of a cycling achievement.

Most cyclists are training for 100 miles in one go.

on microblogging a trip

I’m still working out blogging, micro or not.

The easiest way to avoid mistakes whilst blogging is to not post anything, but that’s also a mistake.

I hit publish on bad at blogging and don’t follow me to acknowledge the gap in content and give myself permission to make more blogging mistakes.

don't follow me

I genuinely don’t think you should be following me.

It’s a bit weird.

bad at blogging

  • blogs are meant to be written in paragraphs
    • but I write my notes as lists
      • I like lists

Hiked the West Highland Way.

96 miles from Milngavie to Fort William.

Rested, showered and caffeinated.

Ready for day 7.

25km to Fort William.

Made it to Kinlochleven.

Should have eaten more than just Skittles and Scottish Tablet for lunch.


Day 6 involves breakfast at Glencoe mountain resort, Kingshouse Inn, and dealing with a low phone battery.

Misty mountain wild camp.

Day 5 and I’d hoped for a massive day, doing 2 stages in one go to bring the total down from 8 days to 7, but I’ve woken up feeling a bit run down.

Hoping the walking fixes it, instead of making it worse.

Day summaries have been postponed until after the trip. They take too long to write on a phone and I have walking to do.

Haggis, Neeps and Tatties at the Tyndrum Inn.

Even later start to day 4 but I treated myself to a full Scottish breakfast.

19km today. Apparently days 2 and 3 are the toughest walking sections so I should be a bit faster today.

Made it to Beinglas in time for dinner.

Loch Lomond

You’re not allowed to camp at this perfect little camp spot and then sit on the perfectly located bench beside it because it’s on this side of the sign.

Breakfast banana from Bocsa Bean in Rowardennan.

And a coffee of course.

I was impressed that the whole trailer’s powered by the electric car parked next to it and only uses 2% of the battery.


Today’s just as long as yesterday and yet I’m setting off an hour later 🥴

Should still make it before sunset.
