I was surprised to find that it went up Barnet Hill at a full 15mph and will do 20 on the flat unless I put assistance to 60 per cent only. I did a run all the way from Potters Bar to St Pancras last night, 15 miles, after buying a very good mirror called the Mirrycle. About 1hr 20 mins.
Now planning a trip to Calais via Southeastern Rail's London to Calais Day Tripper ticket, £26 from Charing Cross to Calais anytime day return on a railcard. Small supplement for HS1. £17 from Gillingham. brfares.com
Southeastern kindly said if P&O had an issue about there being no booking for a bike (there is no option for that) I should ask P&O to call their customer services to confirm Southeastern authorise the bike.
Now just need some good weather.
