I had intended to do Edinburgh to Bathgate and back, but set off too late (mostly due to working until 7am).

Here’s the outward journey: 14 miles in 63 minutes = 13·36mph average.

The return journey was not mapped properly because jPhone’s battery ran out, but I think I did it in around 45 minutes, thanks to the following wind, mostly downhill route and panic because I would be late for a social event. So I guess at an average of around 45 minutes.

This was the my bit of training for Etape Caledonia: 81 miles, with well over a mile of ascent – in May. I need much more training!
