Hi all. Started biking five years ago after losing my bike for 45 years with last two years on road bike. Been trying to gain speed and averaging 15 for this year. Trying to go faster but coming slowly. Have averaged 16 for 40+ miles a few times with little wind. Wish started sooner so could be faster as never seem to pass anyone on a road bike.
Just passed 4,000 miles for year with average trip 40 miles. Prefer to get out early when cooler in Summer time but also like to be done by noon time. Prefer to ride before eating to force body to get nutrition from current stores. You all are an inspiration as I explore what's possible.
