4 The Road to the Isles and the Cairngorms
Start/finish Kyle of Lochalsh Distance 330 miles Riding time 8 hours Checkpoints 4 (Eilean Donan, the Lecht, Dalwhinnie, Commando Memorial)
Zen Maclennan has an advantage, being based on the West Coast of Scotland and he’s sent in an epic ride. It’s a long day that starts and finishes at Kyle of Lochalsh, with the chance to ride the sublime A87 — the Road to the Isles — once in each direction. It’s not shabby in between either, with a lap of the Cairngorms. It takes in four GBRO waypoints along the way. What a brilliant day on a bike.
