Hey Scotty, is this actually rideable? Are there large sections where you have to carry your bike on your back?

This Tour was an epic summer evening, and while a lot of this is relatively rideable, I took an E-bike. The ground is soft and often not well surfaced, so the extra power really helped here. The descent off of Ben Cleuch was just epic. It's fast and is steep in places, a true test of your brake control! You also pass by an area where a plane crashed dating way back. While there isn't much left there now, it's a humbling reminder as you ride past.

It's all rideable but definitely pick your day to go as it can be really boggy in places.
