So today I went on a solo bike ride to Stillwater,MN and back starting from my place in Maplewood,MN. I have doe this once earlier this year with a few friends but took us over 6hrs due to some complications on the way back. My goal was to do this again but solo to see how fast I could do to there and back.
This is at the end of the trail in Stillwater,MN.
This is the distance from my place in Maplewood to Stillwater.
What I average for mph on the way there.
Total distance for the round trip.
Total amount of time it took me to get there and back.
My average speed on the way back.
This is my first year biking and my goals were to average a minimum of 18mph on my 8mi commute, drop 15lbs and log in 1000mi of biking. So far I have achieved all of these goals so I guess I should be proud of myself. I just love it when I show up to group rides and all these roadies doubt that I could keep up with them. I should also mention that I usually average 16mph on 20mi+ rides but today I feel like I was at my best performance. Thanks to all the people on this forum for giving me motivations to stay with my singlespeed, thanks!
