Got a question about speed.
I'm 6'1" tall and 281# as of my recent weekly weigh-in. I've been riding (and losing about 40+ pounds) for about 5 years. However, I'm not sure that either my speed or stamina has increased all that much; generally (when it's warm enough around here to ride outdoors), I cover about 10 miles, riding for one hour.
Should I be expecting to get faster and/or stronger, and, if so, how? Or am I just too old (62) to expect much improvement at this point? It's not like I was expecting to race anytime soon, but I was kinda hoping some day to be able to participate in group rides, most of which seem to start at about 12-14 mph.
Thanks for any thoughts, info, etc.
