About right for most commuting journeys too. I ride with a few others and a couple of them are a lot faster than me. Difference is that they cannot do milage. As soon as we get to above thirty miles offroad they have a problem. OK, first and probably 2nd hill and they are gone- 3rd hill they start to drop back to give me company- 4th hill and they are having gear problems and by the 5th- we are towing them up the hills. Same on distance on road rides- 50 miles and I probably won't see them, above that and we regroup and by 65 - I am towing them again- and If it is 100 miles then I keep my pace up and get the teas in for when they arrive. Eventually.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
