BACK HOME TO THE HEAT AND BIKING UP CAIRN GORM
The last couple of days out in The Alps and the team were hit by cooler conditions, rain, snowfall and cloudy conditions on the cols. A very unsettled spell over a lot of Europe. In marked contrast we are enjoying beautiful clear skies and hot sunshine back home in The Highlands. I had a good blast up Cairn Gorm on the bike today. From the house to the summit it was a reasonable 2 hours and 25 minutes ascent. Quite a bit quicker on the descent! There was a nice breeze but this didn't make any difference to the heat on my face and in my legs :) . Another hot day tomorrow too.
