Day 22 - Tyndrum odds & ends

Hi folks, sorry for silence for last few days - no reception in Glen Lyon!
Couple of big days in there with Davy Duncan and Joan & Collin Wilson’s help pulled back a good bit of time, but I fully expect to lose it again at some point, so might as well be realistic!
Hellish busy main road bike ride into Tyndrum this morning, feeling really jaded after the last 2 days efforts.
Brian Brennan had made the effort to come and track us down in Glen Lyon so he could meet up today and he enjoyed kicking my backside up the first hill of 3 Beinn Chuirn in really dank weather before and quick nosh up then up and over Beinn Bhreac-Laith & Beinn Udlaidh finishing at the high point of the road above Tyndrum at a mere 5pm! An easy day, but much needed.
It was good having Brian there to vent the spleen on and in less than nice weather, other than the final run off, it made life more bearable and shortened the day.
Thanks Brain…
Tomorrow is the classic road of 5 starting with Beinn Odhar around 9 ish if anyone fancies a sharpish trot…?
Forecast look good with sun & showers.
Donald Smith joined us tonight whilst in the middle of a life & death game of Monopoly with Manuel & Duncan and will join us on at least the first hill with the boys and Graham “ropemaster” Kelly & Don “baldy dobber” Reid.
Brenda’s tearoom is OPEN.
