Michele has wanted to cycle in Scotland for as long as I have known her. That was the driving force behind us wending our way up the M5/M6 in a Ford KA with two cycles strapped to the back. This less than ideal situation is the motoring equivalent of attaching a parachute to your car to see how it affects performance. Needless to say that we were in no hurry to get there. The little car performed well above expectation although the fuel consumption suffered a fair bit.
