None tougher than the Healy Pass and you did that okay.  ;)
If you want to be happy learn to be alone without being lonely.
If you want to enjoy the world see it from the saddle of a bike.
If you want to experience beauty camp alone in a spectacular place.
If you want release your anxieties cease excuses and take actions.

Get Noel to take you to Larne and I will meet you off the ferry at Cairnryan. We can then travel up to near the Highlands and ride from there. Take a week or a fortnight whichever you prefer. Although amongst the mountains the gradients are quite gentle. We could have a great time with plenty of banter.

Sounds like an excellent trip Jags, you should try Scotland, wonderful cycling. When I did my JOGLE, Scotland was the best part of the trip. The hills there seemed easier than further south (especially Devon and Cornwall)  When I did my north to south Wales last year, those hills were killers. Maybe I was just lucky and managed to pick a fairly good route through Scotland, but I loved every part of it. Good campsites on the whole too, with cheap prices.
