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.

In April 2018, we met at work and bonded over our love of bikes and cycling! Within months we planned our first John O’Groats to Lands End together.

Luckily for us, Stewart is an experienced cyclist and has already completed a solo 2500 mile JOGLE. Zoe had been cycling for years, but only started taking cycling more seriously in 2017. Since we met cycling has been better and more adventurous than ever!

As of the 31st of March 2019 we are cycling 24,000 miles around the entire world.
