    I couldn't do a 7-8 minute mile in a 5 K if it was down hill. I jog...9-10 minute miles and it doesn't matter if it is a 5K or a 10K...I go the same slow pace. I am much more comfortable cycling...

    As a general rule I would agree...but that is not true if you ride in the Clermont/Minneola/Montverde area. I used the modified standard 53/39 (11/23 cassette) that came with my bike until a couple...
