The trick to a PR
is a nice flat, smooth road with little in the way of traffic or intersections - especially stop signs. Of course a good tail wind helps.
lol i've got a segment on strava that I'm waiting for everything to align on for a new PR
... it's a 3+ mile segment, nice and flat and only a few stop lights... I've come VERY close to beating my PR
(which I had a nice tail wind for) with neutral wind and catching the lights just right... I'm a faster rider then I was when I had my PR
... but haven't made up for the lack of tail wind... that day will come ;-) lol
to the OP... looks like a nice ride... I always love riding near the water (other then the headwinds I get sometimes doh)... looks like it was a nice exploratory ride meandering though neighborhoods and such (I can see it's towards the end so looks like you where just pushing to get those last few miles lol)... those have always been one of my fav types of rides since I was a kid, get to know and see areas you never drive though...
good work 20 miles is certainly nothing to sneeze at
