Today was a surprisingly easy and a stunning ride for about 55 Miles, but then we had quite a climb!

The views in the highlands are just perfect! We took plenty of breaks and really took it all in – we had toilet stops, water stops, peanut butter sandwich stops, and my favourite this-is-so-beautiful-we-have-to-stop stops.

We were so happy to finish at 4:30 today – plenty of time for relaxing! Our host even supplied us with a 2 course meal. There’s nothing to think about – no TV, no noisy neighbours just us in the “Tin Tent” and some stunning views.

A great 2 course meal cooked by our host, cuppa and chill!

AirBnb really paid off for us this time, at £22.96 The Tin Tent was a total bargain! It’s a small, family run campsite with clean facilities. I’m already thinking up my next excuse to return. I loved it! If you’re thinking about your own JOGLE you’re bound to pass it – here’s the listing. We shared the campsite with 3 other cyclists who were in a static caravan and a cat who stood up on his back legs.

We're Zoe & Stewart and we've been cycling around the world since March 2019.

This blog was born in 2017 when Stew cycled a 2,500 mile, solo John O' Groats to Land's End (JOGLE) along the west coast of the UK.

At the time Stew was planning a world cycling tour for his 30th birthday, but his plans changed when he met me and invited me along on this trip of a lifetime. I took no hesitation in saying "YES I'd love to come". We quickly threw ourselves into a 1,022 mile bike tour of the UK to make sure I enjoyed it - needless to say - I love it!

We've since cycled over 20 countries together and I love to share our adventures on this blog.

You can also download our tried and tested routes, and soon we're bringing you gear reviews, guides, bike equipment lists, reviews and more.

I hope you enjoy the blog!
