hehe, I wish I did 30 mile in 2:15, that was lap #2, just under 4 hours for almost 30mile/2 laps of Llandegla black for me.
I'm reckoning under/almost 4 hours for whinlatter also, with more traffic plus the inevitable first lap trying to hard and REALLY suffering on lap #2 no matter how much I tell myself to pace myself.
However knocked 30mins off my total to/from work commute today, 45 mile round trip in 3 hours on my 531C 1990 10speed Tourer - my TRUE
retrobike (although just fitted a modern saddle) not an easy 45 mile either 4500ft of climbing!
