    A Clyde on a Big Ride

    Yesterday was the day. Left the house with two brother inlaws at 5:20 in the morning and got off bike for last time at 7:20pm. What a great day, not to hot, no rain and a lovely tailwind the whole way. In the end we did 380km with a 32.4kph average, can't wait till next year!!!
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    Pretty good. I had to convert your numbers to American-friendly numbers to really get a sense of it: 380 km = 236 miles, and 32.4 k/h = 20.12 mph average speed. Very impressive. Pictures?

    Impressive is an understatement. Great job!

    Wow..20mph average over that distance is worth celebrating... that is hard to maintain an average speed such as that no matter if the wind is helping.
