Cycling in Assynt
This weekend we took a trip to Inchnadamph for a weekend of cycling, whisky and wine. Our previous memories of this area were of a gruelling 138mile sportive ride from Ullapool taking in almost 18,000ft of climbing organised by Hands On Events.
This time our rides were shorter, but we did discover what can only be described as the most amazing 40miles I have ever cycled in my life. The Drumbeg coastal road circled the soaring buttresses of Quinag (pronounced koonyak). Big climbs, and fat descents all rolled into a route that took your breath away on every turn. I’m not waxing lyrical about this ride for the sake of it. It was stunning and will certainly be on the itinerary of Skinny Tyres trips in the future.
