I hope I don't offend anyone with this post (I do that enough in "real life") but I feel like I must be doing something wrong with my riding.
Seems like a day doesn't go by where I read a post about someone who has "just started riding a couple months ago" and they've already ridden "20 centuries, 5 double centuries, and have toured all of Europe and most of Asia" all while maintaining "a 30+ mph average speed". Of course, I'm exaggerating but not by that much.
I've ridden almost 2,000 miles so far this year but there's no way I could do even a metric century much less a full century. In fact my longest ride this year is only 42 miles at about 15 mph.
So is it me or are these people just BS'ing or what? It certainly makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong.
