Weekend away based at Achnasheen;
Ordnance Survey map 25, Car park map ref[masked] & Inver Croft map ref[masked]
There is a lot of scope for riding in this area, at all levels of expertise - or not, although to be able to read a map is almost essential - otherwise you will have to depend on someone leading a ride that you can cope with......
On the Saturday I intend to lead the Torridon circuit route -- Coulags to Coulags circular via Torridon. This is a "Hard/Epic" ride not for novices. Of the order of 40 miles and nearly 4000ft of asscent. (Probably akin to doing the Glentress black one-and-a-half to two times in one day) The ride cuts through wild and unihabited upland areas, riders should be self sufficient -- breaking down means on site repair or a long walk out.
If sufficient people request an easier ride, and, can find a leader then by all means come along, and I will find more sleeping places, but the area demand that you can competently read a map, and use a compass.
Accommodation: Jacobites MC Club hut in Achnasheen for the weekend of Saturday 16th March. Cost ~£7.5 per night. The area is great for mountain biking with the Contin trails only about 25 mins away.
I will post more details of other rides nearer the time.
The idea is to arrive at Inver Friday evening, ride Saturday and Sunday, leaving for home late Sunday afternoon. There is a well appointed kitchen - no microwave!!, lounge and drying room. So bring your own food to cook - unless there is a will to cook as a group...... You will need a sleeping bag.
Any questions just ask. I would suggest that we take as few cars as we can to keep costs down - I have three bike racks and so can take two passengers from Edinburgh.
