    You've been missed.

    But you've not missed a lot. You can probably guess who's been saying what.

    Did you go to the FRB or try Arthur's Seat?

    yes, did 90 miles in all (family holiday), and got over the frb and the 15mph limit for bikes was a red rag to a bull, with predictable results.

    isn't that uphill cobbled section near the ferry terminal nasty?

    Good to hear it. You were relatively lucky with the weather. Whereabouts were the cobbles?

    from memory (i didn't do the route finding) it was after you come off the fbr and go past the ferry terminal after the roundabout (and after another nice climb up past the naval base entrance).
     
  8. I don't know if its enforced, I've got up to 30mph coming of the north/ east side of the bridge, I'm sure other folk have done more.

    I've done about the same...I don't like those little rivets or gaps or whatever they are on the bridge though, speed speed speed...THUD...speed speed speed...THUD...etc, makes me think they'll blow my tyres!

    according to the (wireless) comp on the bike i has riding, i accelerated from 9 to 136mph just at the middle section (having been doing a steady 17 up to the middle prior to that).

    Oh aye, that's the electromagnetic catapult section of the bridge - we locals don't like to tell anyone about that before their first time!
