Reality check. Trek Hybrid 7700 with 700 x 25, 120 PSI tires, going 22 MPH on FLATS is not racing.
I compete with some real bikers in a Michigan Metro Park. Specifically the Michigan Wolverines.
This park has varied terrain with some hills tough enough that 18-20 MPH is an all out effort by me. (no wind)
I did the same 22 MPH average today in that park, on my Cannondale R2000, all on aero bars, with those hills.
I got dropped by several Hot shots from above club. So much for racing.
