Richard - our trip is completed, and the "after-action" report is a big TEN! You did an excellent job of selecting places to stay and just everything. I could tell the people at the inns like you too, because they don't always let people stay for just one night. We had good weather - cool, but great for riding, and no rain - everything went as planned. We were always able to find our inns with a bus or public transportation , or walk, so we did fine on that. We'll probably plan something else in another yr or so - so keep us posted of anything fun and interesting that you have that is new. And the plus was when we got to Fort William they were having the World Championship Mt Bike event and we got to see the course and watch some of the teams practicing....I'm sure you planned that into the trip. ??? ha
Take care and we'll keep in touch. Jamie and Randall, Stanwood, WA, USA.
