    I am probably going to ride early on Saturday, around 6-630, possibly earlier. What speeds/tempos do either of you like to ride at? This is my workout so I try to keep a 18-20 mph moving pace with some sprints thrown in for good measure. And I know the decent roads and trails to ride on, but at that hour the trails are usually sparsely populated and pretty open.
    Looking forward to my winter commuting adventure.....

    I haven't had the chance to find a tempo or measure my speed, but 18-20mph seems fine. I'm somewhat of a beginner, I can ride a bike fine but haven't commuted or travelled much on roads yet. Though I plan to change that as soon as I can. Is that cool?
