NC on an NC
As some of may know, there is a route round the north of Scotland called the North Coast 500, NC500 for short.
This is being promoted as a tourist route for drivers, riders, cyclists, and even walkers. It's approximately 500 miles (c.800km) and takes in some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery.
As the pound is collapsing in value (probably equal to a Zimbabwe Dollar by the time you read this!), there has never been a better time for people from other countries to do the route.
I found a company based in Inverness who'll rent out bikes for anyone wanting to ride the route: NC500 Moto Experience. The bikes they use are Honda NC700Xs, so you can ride the 'NC on an NC' - what a convoluted route to a title!
I've no contact with this company, just found a link to their Website online, so don't blame me if things don't work out!
Also, take waterproofs and midgie repellent - you'll need both!!!
