Tues Eve - Loch Arkaig - Or trial by Bike

The first Tuesday evening paddle of the season was well attended - 10 took to the water. First we had to get there against the flow of 6 Day Trials Bikers coming in the opposite direction in the middle of the road. Who'd want to be a biker and get cold, wet AND MUDDY!
Fortunately we got to the foot of Loch Arkaig just as the bikers were finishing otherwise we would not have been able to park.
A pleasant evening, the earlier showers and rain had departed. We paddled up past the islet and fish farm and across to the mouth of the river Mallie.
A gentle paddle back with almost flat conditions. Chris finished off with a roll. Distance for the outing 7 km.
