    First, you need to learn to keep the tires in contact with terra firma.

    Head stands and face plants are NOT fast.

    You can thank me later for this bit of insightful advice.

I don't have much to loose body fat wise so I'm as close to fit as I will probably get without going on an extreme diet.
    I weigh about 250. My fitness is a bit off form because with all the rain we've had in the UK I haven't been out much since Christmas. I'm currently maintaining a moving average speed of 14-15mph on the road, although that's dragged down a little by traffic lights etc. Time stopped at lights is factored out but every time I have to stop it takes time to slow to a halt and then start moving again.

    Last year I averaged 18mph for a whisker over 30 miles. That's about as good as it gets for me at the moment.

    When I was 290-300 I would always average around 15mph, when I got down to 250 before winter I went up a almost couple MPH for same length rides. Im 220 now so it will be interesting to see if I went up any more. This stupid winter weather.
