The ‘Beulah’ Tour Cycling Cape Wrath & Scotland’s Wild North-West
words and photography by Stefan Amato and Jordan Gibbons
An unsupported 3.5 day circular tour of Scotland’s North West, with Brother Cycles.
The seeds for this trip were sown across two bike tours: first – our Lost Lanes Overnighter, when I (Stefan) found a beautiful 1971-75 OS Second Series 1:25,000 map sheet of Cape Wrath in an old Hay-on-Wye bookshop and, more recently, during our Exmoor 200 ‘AAA’ Weekender when Will from Brother Cycles mentioned that he wanted to take their soon-to-be-released 29er – ‘the Big Bro’ – on a testing voyage before tackling the Tour Divide. The best trips and ideas are forged on the road – the perfect time to think, to dream, and get to know people. I had this journey I’d been longing to ride in my mind, and by the end of the Exmoor tour, Will and I decided to travel to the very north-westerly point of the UK via the ‘Cape Track’ and explore her wild surrounds by bike together.
