75 year old cyclist killed. The Dunain Straight is a long but not terribly wide section of the A82. It's one of a few areas on the road where overtaking is possible so often sees high speeds. A proper cycle path is badly needed for the whole length of the A82. May the poor chap rest in peace.

    Didn't realise it was a cyclist :(

    I know more money is going towards cycling up here and thought the great glen route was one of those that will be improved.

    They're doing something with the Great Glen route but I don't know what. At present it's mostly off road for mountain bikes. I don't know if they intend a road bike track.

    I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.

    Fortunately, I'm some way short of 72
