well, i've had my cycling computer on for 1 year and 2 months (426 days). My odometer is at 3800 miles right now. Doing the math, my bike has gone an average speed of 0.372 MPH over the past 426 days. i could've sworn i was going faster... ;)

When I'm stopped at a traffic light my car gets 0 mpg - exactly the same as a gas hog Hummer. Doesn't seem fair does it?

Some days I FEEL like I'm going 0.372 MPH.

You all have way too much time on your hands.... and so do I, seeing as I'm actually reading these posts. :o

Were you going for solitaire and hit the calculator instead? :crash: :p

Just checked it out on a calorie calculator! Be careful! You are burning calories at an astounding rate. You may lose a half-pound over the course of a decade! Be careful cornering also. I don't want to see you get hurt. :beer:

According to the gear calculator, that works out to spinning a 22 X 425 gear at 80 RPM. (1.4 gear inches) You may take a while, but if you can get traction, you could pedal up the side of the Sears Tower.
