Watch: Bikepacking the Cairngorms in Scotland Looks Both Miserable and Thrilling

As we ride the bikes slower and slower uphill we could be a million miles from civilization. We can see maybe ten feet in front, the darkness is creeping upon us like smoke in the air. But still the climb continues up into light falling snow. A line of bike lights lead us ahead into the grayness. The Cairngorms were calling and I guess this is their answer.
