Mexico-Glasgow then UK and Europe

#1 Post by garrydymond » Sat Jan 27, 2018 5:20 pm

My wife and I will be flying into Glasgow from Mexico City and then pick up a bike to travel on for 6 months.
We arrive in Glasgow on May 2 and return home Nov 3. We will spend about 6 weeks in total in the UK.
Any help with tips and cheap or free places to stay will be greatly appreciated.

You have got to do the North Coast 500 ride

It would take you four relatively leisurely days, one to get to the start at Inverness, Glasgow via Glen Coe and Ft William up the A82 to Inverness. Then two to do the run, stopping Durness midway. Then come back via the A9 (dull road, but great scenery) and stay in Edinburgh. From Edinburgh leave Scotland by the A68 via Carter Bar.

I hope to do the NC 500 either when we arrive or when we return. We have applied for World Cup tickets for the Mexico Vs Germany game. I am not a football fan but it means we could get into Russia without a visa thus saving money.
We will know around March if we get the tickets. Once we know we can plan a little better.
We have quite a few friends in the UK as we put up motorcycle travellers at home. We have received several people from the UK.
