Got off to good dry start at about 6:30, I took the bike because I thought it would be good for the descent. I started to wonder if that was a good idea after pushing the bike about half way up the very stoney track. It was handy when I got the fork in the road and the ground was less steep. By the time I got near Carn na Caim the cloud and drizzle had come and visibility was rubbish. Just under two hours to the top and then a quick cycle back to the fork, the route on here shows a detour past the fork but I missed that. Headed off for hill two,dumped the bike and walked up the hill the weather had improved now so I could actually see something. Got to the summit of number two before ten and still hadn't seen another person. Picked up the bike and slowly rolled down the hill back to the car, wasn't very easy to cycle down but it was quite easy on the legs. Back to the car for eleven and off to Aviemore for thunder in the Glen.
