Rab’s World: West Highland Way In A Day

by singletrackjon 4

The West Highland Way is one of the classic outdoor routes in Scotland: a 96 mile, predominantly off road track running from Milngavie (mul-guy) just north of Glasgow to Fort William, home of the UK’s highest mountain and the outdoor capital of the UK. The track is a classic walkers route and the West Highland Way race is held on the longest day each year where ultra runners race to Fort William.

  1. WHW in 11hrs 45mins! Well done! I did it north to south with a pal over 2 days and a total time of 19hrs dead. We had a couple of mechanical issues and 1 bad fall so actual cycling time was just over 18hrs…but that was over 2 days and I was totally wasted by the end! I’d always fancied trying the WHW and then the Great Glen Way in 24hrs…but I seriously think it’d be almost impossible unless you had the time to properly train.

  2. Once again – awesome job Rab! Double up next time for sure…. ATB GB

  3. Wow – damn fine effort sir. Like the strava link for the racing 😉

  4. Did it this year despite a slight mishap and lobbing myself into Loch Lomond while riding rather than carrying over a
    rocky section.

    Do float, as long as your tyres are big enough!
