The weather was superb for this early morning time trial up, down and up the All. There was a fair amount of traffic (especially motorbikes, heading to Snetterton) but everyone seemed to be driving calmly and patiently. There were only a few non-starters, not surprisingly, so over 70 competitors took part. Despite struggling on some of the ascents (okay, 3% gradients feel steep on a TT bike!) and being a bit cautious on the four junctions at the turns, I was really please to post an all-time PB of 54:39 - an average of 27.4MPH.

Here is a short video I shot whilst driving down to the HQ for my late start. It features Peter Johnson (Norwich ABC); Trevor Roberts (Wolsey RC); John Parkes (Stowmarket & District CC); Derek Lusher (Norwich ABC); Andy Blower (Cambridge CC); Fergus Muir (Tricycle Assoc East):
Here is my ride, as captured on Strava. Note that neither HRM or cadence sensor were recording correctly - probably interfering with each other!

I removed the speed sensor from the rear wheel, but HRM and cadence are still messed up.
