    Its the coldest day in May I can ever remember here in the north of Scotland, only a mere 4 degrees on the way in this morning and snow everywhere[not quite as cosy as the control room], so enjoy a good rest on your last day before the start, stay in bed and hope for an improvement. The good news is there will be no midges,hypothermia might kill you though !.

    Best of luck from all your SGN colleagues in Norh Scotland, hope to see you en route, always a warm welcome here if you can stop for a cuppa, we can see the Kessock Bridge from here,

      Thanks for your comments Colin. I passed a lot of snow coming through the cairngorms this morning . I am currently on the train to Thurso from where I’ll make my way to JOG and pitch my tent. I have to be a bit conservative with the battery power for a while so will be offline until tomorrow when I set off. P.s. the sleeper service is…..interesting. The short bread for breakfast was a nice touch!

    Lovely to meet you Tom, it was blummin cold at JOG. Glad to start cycling back down with the wind on my back! Good luck and hope you sorted out the charger situation.

      Thanks you too Stuart. I camped in a forest just beyond Thurso, right next to the moor last night. Well out of the wind. Lovely and soft, almost forgot where I was! Unfortunately still haven’t sorted the dynamo issue. Have three batteries so should make it until a b&b where i’ll recharge them all up. You must have have flown along with that wind, very envious. Good luck with your ride, I’ll keep up to date with your blog.
