Great British Cycle Rides
Dave Barter put together the wonderful book, Great British Bike Rides, which
brings together 40 of the best road rides in England, Scotland and Wales. He leaves his favourite ride, Lochinver and Assynt, to the last in the book.
exquisite…if I was allowed only one bike ride, this would be it
I have ridden this loop many times, in both directions, leaving Lochside House with anticipation and always returning with tired legs but a huge smile on my face, I agree with Dave its an amazing ride.
The Guardian newspaper published excerpts from Dave’s book and you can find a description of the Lochinver ride here
