    7.3 miles in 28 mins.

    didnt think that was too bad havin to wait 1 in at traffic lights, and spent about 2 miles at 6mph going up a never ending hill.

    might make this route my regualr 'training route':becool:

    Where's your route young un ? I go from Church Hill up Brockhill Lane to the back of the prisons, that's not a bad climb.

    'about 2 miles at 6 mph', thats 20 mins, so the other 'about' 5.3 miles was done in 8 mins, never mind the wait at the lights. That is quite fast, and on a mountain bike too. Think Young Un needs to get signed up by some team pdq.
