Stretching from just outside the hustle of Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, to the iconic highland town of Fort William, the 95 mile (153 km) West Highland Way is a world-famous, multi-day traverse loved by walkers from around the world. What is less well known about the route is that a hardy band of mountain bikers have been vying for record times along the way for the last 10 years. Riding “the way” in its entirety is a notable accomplishment – it boasts a meaty 3,000m of climbing, and parts of the terrain involve carrying, rather than riding the bike.
