>Were virtually all British TTs reasonably flat?I don't know about "virtually all" but there was a tendency to design
courses that would produce fast times. Such as using the shoulders
of busy motorways to take advantage of the "Tailwind" created by
passing cars. I do know that John Woodburn used ACs and FCs for his
attempts at the Cardiff to London record which he finally got. 162
miles and not particularly flat. Hill climbs were basically uphill
TTs and usually done on a single speed bike.
