    clocked over 30mph without a tailwind, gradient or slipstream. didn't last for ages as the road rose upwards before i turned off, but a nice start to the day nonetheless. :biggrin:

    Well done, i came in at about 23/24mph when i got going, but i bet i'm older, fatter and less fit than you!

    Nice morning for it though.

    cheers chrises. keep it up. last april(06) i was having to use a mtb to get up the local rise i can now (occasionally) sprint up in 52/13, so i'm sure you'll get to do 30 on the flat too.

    anyone who has reached a personal milestone shoud be proud of themselves, however insignificant it might be to the faster/slimmer/well equipped members on here.

    I remember a bike shop owner once looking me in the eye before a road bike test ride, and ernestly telling me to obey the speed limit.

    I knew he was kidding, but it still gave me a frisson

    i set off a slow down sign in a 40 zone once. (yea, ok, i admit, i was going downhill at the time :biggrin:)

    i'm lucky if i get above 18 on the flat, and that's with a tail wind on a good day!
