What is a good average speed for a 50+ (relatively serious) recreational cyclist.
I am 51.
205 lbs - 6".
Never been a great athlete - never been a couch potato.
I started riding again 4 years ago after a 20+ year absence.
I use 1970's-1980's steel bikes for the majority of the rides.
My statistics show that I am right at mid 20's in kph - somewhere between 15-16 mph.
I am just trying to get a norm, and a goal for myself.
I was thinking 18 mph average goal for the end of the year, and perhaps next year set the goal at 19-20?
Then most importantly, how to go about achieving improvement short of modern bikes.
For example, after TOSRV in May, I plan on riding my 1977 red Super Le Tour 12.2 for a few months.
Love that bike.
