17 to 19 mph on 700x28 Gatorskins on 15 mile loop. This was after a few months of riding, prior to then I was a couch potato. I'm planning on 500 miles/month for the next 9 months.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
