Starvation Road !

Its been pretty turbulent weather over the last few days with no real sign of that long warm nice spell which usually appears in the spring here. Am sure it is just a little delayed although for now its worth keeping the waterproofs and down jackets still handy. 
I had to drop off a vehicle in Oban yesterday and took the bike along in order to get back to Mull. There was a ride I had been keen to take on the Island which almost cuts right across the Island. Known as a Starvation road (more to follow on what that means in a little short film). Starting just outside Craignure it follows a track right over the island to finish in Pennygael on the other side making for around 35km of good riding. 
Not a great image but a screenshot from the video editor, I shall post the short up here soon !
