Sub - 60. Wasn't expecting that. The hour definitely wasn't on at Braco or even at Greenloaning - where I got held up at the A9 junction, too - but I made good time up the hill and by the summit it suddenly seemed possible. Cursing a digger blocking the road where I'd have been barrelling along at 45kph, so lost momentum and another 10s+, but still managed to just squeak in under the hour. Not bad on those big fat 35Cs.

Easy ride with Jamie - Braco return. Might have been a bit faster if I'd managed to persuade Jamie not to take the mountain bike. Well, at least he got some exercise.
Dragged the Genesis off the turbo to a) see if I could identify the source of graunching noise under load - no, not sure what it is, and b) to test out the new power-meter pedals. Crikey, what a lot of data. No idea what 99% of it means, but, good news - despite L knee duffness, power balance between the two legs is good, at least when tootling along at Jamie-on-an-MTB pace.
