    She's due to go past my workplace/give me a run for my money on the commute home later.

    2 counties down. Now in Taunton, 15 minutes ahead of schedule.

    Her schedule is here. The schedule on the tracker appears to be a crude linear projection, so it's overstating how far she is ahead of plans. And the tracking is a bit flaky, so it's underestimating distance and hence actual average speed - I reckon by about 10 - 15% if the schedule is reliable. All of which means that the 18.6mph reported average to get through and beyond Bristol is probably more like 20mph.
     
  13. Yeah. The tracker is currently saying 186 miles, but 20 minutes ago they tweeted they were past the 200mile make.

    200 miles, including rush hour Bristol, in less than 10 hours? That's astonishing.

    Aye - she's got the wind behind her this bit. https://www.ventusky.com/ ? Wind looks a lot tougher once she's "round the corner" :sad:. And I sure as anything hope she's got better weather than Yorkshire just now :rain:. Go, lass, go.
