And wow, are my legs tired!
I went for an enjoyable circuit last night starting from home. Temp was about 75°, low humidity, partly cloudy, a bit breeze. I averaged a bit over 12 mph, and never unclipped the entire ride (got lucky at the only stoplight )
We live on the outskirts of River Falls, WI, and I started out going out of town up a STEEP hill. I managed to hit 39 mph on the following downhill. From there it was about 5 miles of lightly rolling hills through the country and back into town. After a mile down main street, the last mile brought me back home.
Oh, I said two minutes, right? Here's a video of my ride, which I drove right after the ride: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k--zXqlW77M
