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.

Training rides

Lisa and John joined us for a 110 km training ride last week. It was great, but Mike's back tire came out of the stays and he took a nasty tumble. Then he snapped the brake cable to the front brake. Even with these problems it was a good check out ride for the bikes.

We have been planning and packing and are now ready to go -- but I am coming down with a cold. I have been popping the Cold-FX pills, and I hope this will stop the cold in its tracks.

Mike got some new rear panniers and a new day-pack (for the "bagging" part of our trip -- a.k.a. the "hiking"). Since we are not taking camping gear we have light bags and plenty of room.
