I’ll try to record this cycle each week. I didn’t record the outward trip because I was running late (as ever) and didn’t have time to set up the recording.

I think I’ve found a maintain a better-than-utterly-rubbish speed up Cramond Road South. This morning I didn’t approach the hill at top whack (under those conditions 17mph) so I wasn’t demoralised by dashed expectations rapidly, and I could maintain a reasonable cadence all the way up. I maintained over 7mph. Given that I’ve been crawling along at 5mph at the top on previous runs, this is quite pleasing.
I’m unconvinced by the app’s ascent and descent measurements. Almost exactly the same route – certainly no difference in the streets I rode – but why the 90-foot diffference in Descent readings?
