    Looks interesting. Always fancied an overnight ride.

    What's the cycling like Gourock back to Glasgow?

    Pan flat dual carriageway along the side of the Clyde for most of it.

    However... We have just secured a boat to sail 240 lucky peeps back from Dunoon to Glasgow. It will take just under 3 hours. The alternative ferry / bus or train would take 2 hours so it's a good option.

    If we look like having more than 500 riders wanting the boat option then we will get this boat

    Yep. Just spent tonight working on my 'lighting concept' :shock:

    Not daring to look at the weather forecast just yet...

    I promised Alpe D'Huez meets Ibiza. I think we delivered.
