Day 8 - Wet!!

Well it had to happen at some point on the journey. Rain. After a gentle ride along the shores of Loch Lomond and a midge attack at Tarbet, we started the long climb. Just as it started to rise the rain started to fall and it didn't stop until we were over the other side in Fort William. It absolutely hammered it down for about 5 hours. Despite the weather it wasn't too cold and spirits didn't falter. In fact the scenary was still very spectacular and beautiful. We still had our favourite - the head wind and even had to pedal on one descent.
