After such a hard day yesterday, today was exactly what I needed!

Essentials first – a good breakfast, thanks to our host we had quite a choice – cereals, fruits, snack bars and a coffee! Then we headed out early and started with an easy cycle path!

We took regular breaks and I’m reminded that fuelling properly makes the biggest difference.

Today we headed into the mountains along the A82. We climbed up to the top of Ranoch moor and cycled between the mountains for 20 Miles. We got hit by a massive head wind as we left the moor and struggled on for a couple of miles barely making 9 mph.

We stopped outside a corner shop of all places – just to grab some water, but we ended up chilling there for 45 minutes!! The last 20 Miles were a joy and fuelled by Irn-bru – must’ve had a major sugar rush as we were pretty speedy!

A great day and just what I needed – and a lesson learned – before I knew that fuelling correctly was important…now I really know!!

Our Airbnb is absolutely perfect tonight, it was no surprise that our host was a Superhost. It was one of the more expensive rooms at £74.64, but it was so so worth it! Here it is for anyone travelling that way! The bedroom is huge, the host is generous, kind, super friendly and full of historical and local knowledge. She pointed us to a lovely place for dinner where we tried Oysters and enjoyed Fish and Chips!

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!
