On road? Yes I’ve ridden the bealach na ba on the bealach mor sportive. I enjoy climbing and I’m reasonably good at it so I enjoyed the climb. Hardest bit is the 2 mile straight section. It’s a wonderful climb and the views are stunning.
I’ve done it on the road bike. Tough, but brilliant fun, although you really need to be a cyclist to appreciate the “pain is fun” thing. The bottom half is easy. The tough bit is the long straight drag to near the top. The hairpins look daunting but are actually quite easy. Oh, and the descent is awesome. And the Applecross Inn does fantastic seafood.
I did it about 25 years ago (!), well worth it and I still bore the kids with the story every time a picture of it comes up. I did it just as the road was built around the north peninsula that you can continue on from Applecross, it’s also well worth a ride but hard as it’s up and down the whole way.
Thanks but didn’t really help. Something along the lines of country and county. But it’s cool I found it, the pics of look awesome.
About 15 seconds on Google would have told you the answer surely? Plus, in the British cycling world it is a hugely well known road. Don’t think it was unreasonable that people assumed everyone knows where Applecross is.
