Fine (as is the bike!), hell of a fright though. I made eye contact with her as I rounded the roundabout (as you do), she still thought she could get out ahead of me. Absolutely mental, as I wasn't covering the brakes, I was convinced I was going onto her bonnet, but between her eventually braking and me swerving I just made it.

Apart from that (and some other wifey in Linlithgow nearly collecting me as she opened her car door) it was a cracking night (and ride), averaged 18.3mph over 21.6 miles, reasonably pleased, thinking I could get to like this.

I'm beginning to wonder if my GPS is broken :D

Ach, there aren't any big hills (only 472 ft of climbing), so you can maintain a reasonable average for most of it. I need to start ramping up the distance, and build the stamina rather than worry about speed anyway.
