    I’d cycle it but I’m not sure I’d suggest someone else did if they didn’t know it and acecpt the risk. It’s not exactly a slow easy route but it’s no more dangerous than any arterial road into a city.

    Motorbikes don`t do 100mph+ going into a city on the complete wrong side of the rode towards you

    teh issue is not just the motorcycles – its the cars and trucks – there are stretches that are fst but not wide enough for 2 cars and a bike. You are putting your life in other peoples hands too much

    Then you have the bit from onich to fort william that is mainly double white lines and narrow – cars will try to squeeze past there I bet unsafely.

    I’ve done over 100mph on that road in a car (I was young and stupid and it was a hired Vectra V6 turbo, I wouldn’t do the same thing now) and every time I’ve been on it I’ve seen cars and motorbikes doing that sort of speed.

    One tiny mistake at that sort of speed and an entire group of cyclists could be wiped out. Seriously, avoid the road, find another route.
