|The start of the Burma Road|

I'll mention now that Tom had brought the mid with him, a great 3-4 person bivy/tent. I think I'd asked him if he was bringing a proper inner with bug netting, and I'm sure he said he was. Unfortunately it had a floor, but no netting, so basically it was a teepee with a gap all the way around the base allowing high midge flow levels to enter and exit as required (mainly enter and bite!). Therefore I tried to sleep in the car whilst they fought for their lives in the bug tent.

The cloud bubbled in and we got soaked dropping down into the beautiful glen on the other side of the pass. We took shelter in a nice red roofed bothy before the sun came out and we continued on.

From here we got a little lost but eventually found a series of off route cycleways to get us back to Aviemore. A brilliant ride that ended up being about 35 miles. I think the boys enjoyed it, just another midday night to endure now....
