    Imagine you are riding to the local park with a young child.

    so goes that speed for the distance of my normal route?

    I can't image going that slow. I guess it takes a frame of mind to stay slow.

    thanks

    Do a shorter route as well. If you normally do a 50 km loop, do a 25 km loop. And the frame of mind is a "smell the roses" kind of mindset. Ride with your head up. Look around at the scenery. Coast.
