Spencer Robson - Lands End to John O'Groats Cycle

Day 11 - Spencer's blog

Set off from Livingston today on another grand adventure. The traffic was heavy, even at 7:00am. Managed to dodge the major roads taking the scenic route to the Forth Road Bridge. It's the first time I've been over the bridge on a bike and what a great experience. You could feel the whole bridge shaking under you with the weight of the traffic. The views were very impressive looking at the railway bridge and the almost finished new bridge (don't think ...it has a name yet) whatever it's eventually called its a wonderful piece of engineering.
After the bridge there was a 10 mile stretch of steep uphill that I didn't see coming that had the legs screaming at me to stop and me thinking I could be in Corfu right now!
After Kinross the going was easier and the sun even made an appearance. Everything changed and it was great cycling through stunning countryside.
Through Perth and Dunkeld (beautiful village) through more jaw dropping scenery until arriving at my digs for the night at Pitlochry. I was going to go onto Blair Atholl but Gail reminded me there was a great chippy in Pitlochry so that was that. Also took some random photo's of horses for Jan πŸ˜ƒ
Inverness bound in the morning🚴🏻

Your going to feel so lost once you've finished this, well for a day or so....
After all the planning and preparation, it's almost finished, mixed emotions I would think. You have done brilliantly, keep going, not far now 😜🚴🏻🚴🏻🚴🏻

Im guessing you had mushy peas with the fish n chips again. Hope they arent classed as performance enhancing substances (mushy pea- fart power). Its been great seeing your photos of each leg of your journey. Well done. Best luck Scott Kaye n Niamh x
