You bike 10 miles at 20 miles per hour and 10 miles at 10 miles per hour. What is your average speed?
Lest we forget, this is the internet.
Because we are reporting our result here this is what I expect the response would be:
"Today I did a club ride, we rode fast the first half of the ride but I cleaned the clocks of all those posers dressed in their USPS kit. This stage of the ride went on for 20 miles and I averaged 30 mph. I buried everyone. We took a little break and then headed off for the last 20 miles of the ride. This was up hill - we climbed the South Pillar route up Everest. I was able to keep my power output up around 500 watts until I got to about 25,000 feet when I started breathing hard, those last 4900 feet to the summit was hard but I got there first. All those under 50 were puking their guts out. I was able to maintain an average of 15 mph. When it was all over I played 18 holes of golf, cut the grass and made wild passionate love to 5 of my groupies. I averaged 25 mph by my calculations."
