I did my first proper time trial today! 10-miles on the B10/3, which is the A11 from just north of Attleborough to Besthorpe and back again. On the plus side, I was not the slowest rider! Hurrah! I was the second slowest! Honour is retained. :mrgreen:

My time was 32:23, which is about 20 minutes faster than I expected, so I is well chuffed :grin:

I'm under no illusions about my (lack of) ability, I was doing it purely for fun and much fun was had. Folk were on the overhead bridges and cheered, at the turn marshals cheered me on. It was *fun*

I now have a personal best for a ten mile time trial! :mrgreen:

I'm going to do some more as part of my efforts to keep fit and hopefully keep the flab at bay.

I may scare the natives and invest in a skinsuit...

I say! Jolly good wheeze old girl! All geared up to make an assault on the 30:00 mark with a Cipo skinsuit in the Spring! :mrgreen:
