Very Happy Interesting 'long way round' commute from Plymouth to Torpoint.

Suspect Max speed 41mph (Garmin dashboard adjusted to 40.1mph http://connect.garmin.com/activity/144081238). Had to apply the brakes as it was pouring, on a very busy A38 and dark - will have to max out on a dry day and see how it goes?

affraid Only really hairy moments when lines of vehicles approached from the opposite direction and obviously vehicles overtaking me couldn't see me clearly due to the oncoming glare - so it was often an interesting journey - a little quieter on the A374. 20 miles (quite hilly) in 85mins alien

60 is the bar then....I reckon I can manage that this Summer. Question is down D'Huez, Galibier, Madeline, Croix de Fer, Mount Venoux, Aubisque or Tourmalet....or another one that I fail to mention.
