My stats over the last month have started trending down. ie lower cadence, lower avg speed.
I have a specialized sequoia comp with 700x25 tires which I had been running at 120~125 psi.
My weight has been 205+-4 pounds all spring and summer.
This last month I tried dropping the pressure to 110~115 psi.
The lower pressure has certainly helped smooth the ride.
On the other hand this this has been the coolest Oct in quite a while. Most of the
month I have been wearing a windbreaker and knee warmers. ( It also has been
a bit windier than during the summer.)
This has been my first year of riding. I got the bike last November and have put
on about 900 miles since june.
On yet another hand I had my seventy first b'day this last August...
So...Does Fall bring on a slow down (in general) or should I go back to higher
