[Sticky] The West Highland Way by Mountain Bike in 3 Days
I would be really interested is hearing from some one that has done the West Highland Way from north to south on MTB's
I tried it a couple of years ago but I joined a group of friends but it wasn't organised very well.
I am doing it again next year with my son and am doing all the organisation myself.
Or does any one know of a blog or write up from some one who has done it from north to south.
A little vid of a fall by my mate the last time we went for you to have a look at. The funny part is when he picks his bike up he hits his brother on the chin with his saddle lol.
new to site and just read your report , fantastic and well done! i walked it in 2010 and attempted to bike it last May from north to south unfortunately weather was atrocious, snow ! hail! sleet! wind that blew your tyres off!! and by the time we got to king house we were finished both mentally and physically. Needless to say we refuse to admit defeat and plan on a second attempt next May. Thanks for the report great read
Great write up of the trip - I read it when I got back last week and it pretty much nailed the whole experience. Amusingly i slipped and fell on the same patch of grass on Conic Hill as the OP.
Interesting doing it in November - not a soul on the track pretty much... though there are logistical problems trying to get baggage moved given that most of the companies shut up shop in October, We were lucky to get help from a real star at Geminiwalks - Julie Deans. Would totally recommend her if you are looking to sort out bags on the WHW....
Also... doing it in November the ferry is not going to be a reliable option - so you have to do the Inversnaid hell walk whether you like it or not (and it really is hell if you get stuck doing most of it in the dark like us)!
