Report for London to Bath and back     Schedule for London to Bath and back      A few extra bits

Looking at my training diary for 1991, I see that I rode the Polytechnic 25 a few days before the Bath & back.  I recorded 54.00 on my bicycle.   A few days after the Bath & back, I clocked 58.06 for 25 miles on my tricycle.   Both of those rides were and still are my personal best times.

I had my first Edinburgh to London schedules rejected.  I had wanted to make two attempts at the 12 hour record during the bigger ride.   One of them would begin at the Edinburgh start and the other at the top of Soutra.  But the Secretary wasn't having it.  So I had to conform....

Press cuttings and a few other items.   Schedules for Edinburgh-London from other riders.

A few weeks after this ride, I recorded 21.06 for 10 miles on my bicycle.  Another personal best that is still current.

(I also submitted a schedule for London to York using the A10 route out of London, similar to my choice of approach from Edinburgh above)
(And also Cardiff to London)
