Background to the ride

back home
Back home at 16:25 on 18th June with all nine objectives achieved. Yes nine objectives; the four cardinal points, the four cardinal Munros and most important keeping to schedule. It was a hard 19 days but somehow or other the weather had been mostly quite kind to us. The showers of the first five days or so had generally chosen to fall elsewhere. The hot weather of the last few days however made it quite taxing and thirsty work.

For many years now I have been doing a summer charity event for a range of charities; RNLI, WaterAid, redr uk and Prostate Cancer either sailing, walking or more recently cycling. 2011 was a Lands End to John o'Groats trip via the three peaks. 2012 was a very washed out solo Jurassic Classic 100 mile ride in Devon and Dorset and 2013 was another solo effort around a collection of 150, 200 and 300km Audax rides. What could possibly be done next? I looked at various schemes but finally I decided on a visit to the most easterly, northerly, westerly and southerly points of the Scottish mainland and so it was that ENWS was born. It was then suggested doing the four most easterly, northerly, westerly and southerly Munros along the way so it morphed into ENWS+4M.

Please have a look at the charities pages to see more details about why and who I did the ride for. The daily logs allow each day's ride or walk to be seen in detail with the distances and height gains. Full details of each day's ride with all the metrics and elevation profile can be seen at Ride With GPS by clicking on the map at the end of each day's page.
