For about 25 miles before they left my old, fat behind. Rode home alone but I'm staying up longer then I used to. They used to take pity on me when I rode the hybrid but since I bought the road bike they're just pounding me. Patience has never been my best number and I want to catch up so bad. I'm working on my cadence and trying to build up my strength cause it's the hills that kill me. It's annoying to give these little guys a 100lb advantage. I did the first 25 miles at 17.5 mph. I'm not sure about the end cause someone pulled out in front of me and I jammed on the brakes and blew the rear tire about a mile and a half from home. Walking in bike shoes messes with your average speed. I have a better rear tire and I'm ready to try again but it's 40 degrees outside and I've been in Florida way too long.
