Biking and Bagging -- A biking and hiking tour through Scotland

From Aug 24 - Sept 21, 2007 Mike and I joined Alan and Jan on a biking and hiking adventure in Scotland. We rode though some of the Western Isles and Highlands.

Scotland ho!

Mike and I made it to the Vancouver Airport.
We had a bit of rain in the
morning, but then the sun came out. The route into the Vancouver Airport
is an easy one -- cruising along the dyke in Richmond. However, there are some strange dipsy doodles when you get close to the airport itself.

We had a great night in Ladner at Paton Place B&B -- it was great to see
Peggy, Mark, and Spirit the dog.

Now for the stats:
Mike - weight 225 with boots and all
Mike's bike - 82 lbs
Mary - 158 lbs
Mary's bike - 90 lbs (you all see that Mary's bike is the heaviest).
(Mike says he weighed 215 at Vancouver Airport naked.)

We are getting good at stripping down the bikes -- 35 mins to get the
bikes ready.

Our next report will be from Scotland.

Update -- we met up with Jan and Alan in Seamill:
