  ECK
Does anyone have an accurate distance for today? I accidentally stupidly zeroed my computer at the finish.  :facepalm: But I think it was going to be a wee bit short of 200k.

Flush with their success filming the chisel jawed randonneurs through rain wind and hot sunshine on Sunday's event, the crew are now working flat out to ensure that the final version is a classic.  It’s likely to be named “Seven bridies for seven brothers”.  

They will also be returning to the area to film those crackpots tackling the 2nd leg of the Snow Roads the "other way" to make it up to 600 on Sunday 6th June under the working title "Kevin and Philly Go Large".

This will be followed by a summer season featuring Saturday Night Riever Fever, Full mEtal Jacket and La Vie en Rosewell.

The autumn programme will feature the Grapes of [Carn]Wrath, Harry Potter For Tea & the Half Baked Info Control and last and by all means least a remake of Grease, which will be based in Fishnish starring John(stonebridge) Travolta and Olivia Newton More.

I only deal in facts. O:-)

...and here you are, at 1.16  8)
Alan has just sent me a link to a clip of the video he was filming on the day:

I don't know when he plans to have the finished version but I think it will be worth waiting for.
Some great shots: I really liked the opening sequence on the Cairn o'Mount and, aye ok BA, your grupetto had a certain er, "style" about it, but who's the wee guy in the headband?  ;)
It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.

That is looking very promising - very atmospheric, particularly at the start.

Like the music and the subtle ghostly voice "Scottish weather ..."   ;D

"Several Scottish audax worthies" - if that's not Arts and Entertainment, I don't know what is.  ;D Mrs eck and I have both bought new sparkly frocks for what is sure to be a gala occasion on 21 January.
