On the 13th of July Dunc and Jim will start a five day mountain bike adventure from Aberdeen to Braemar; on into the Cairngorms, through Dalwhinnie and over the bealach by Ben Alder to Loch Ossian. The second part of their unique route will take them through the Mamores onto Fort Augustus before riding up to Glen Affric before finishing near Inverness. Dunc and Jim are raising cash for the Scottish Association for Mental Health and the Slattadale Restoration project – Gairloch High School.
We are both grateful to Gary & Alex at SMG Europe for supplying us with a SPOT 3 tracker device
Aaron from Openhouse products will again be providing us with excellent expedition meals like the ones Jim used last year on a bike trip through the mountains near Achnashellach.
Finally, although we both hope to avoid the midges we will be carrying new midge repellant and nets from Carolyn Parker at pyramidtravelproducts
Wherever possible we will upload photos, our route on SPOT gen 3 and reports from our trip.
Dunc and Jim, nineonesix-guiding
