So, today was a head wind heading home on the trail. To boot, my work building is renovating so I have to lock up on the street these days. This means riding the used/beater mountain bike instead of my normal FG touring bike.
I mention these things as they add up to unusual slowness.
My average speed checking endomondo was 16-17mph. Not bad for a head wind. ALL THAT EXCEPT A ROLLERBLADER WAS ON MY ASS FOR 4 MILES! I could not believe this guy's speed!
The guy was drafting me and we passed all of the cyclists on the trail today. I thought he was going to pass me if I didn't keep pushing it!
This got me thinking, have any of you been passed by a rollerblader commuting? It happens, no shame, there are some seriously fast guys on skates....
