I've always been a little slow
So, perhaps it is time to make some summer goals.
I can easily bump up to a bit over 20 MPH, but it is hard to maintain it over long distances. So, 15 MPH over 20 miles seems tough enough.
I did a couple of test rides in the last few days... 18.3 MPH for 6 miles
Perhaps I'll work on a summer goal, 20 MPH for 20 miles. Solo. RT. Some may think it is slow... some may think it is fast...
Maybe I just need some new CF and new wheels
It is about 10 miles to the end of my road and back with a few very small hills, and a gradual incline towards the end of the road... so out and back twice would be about 20 miles.
It seems pretty daunting to pick up both the speed and miles
And... I also got close to a double century a month ago... 181 miles. WHEW!!! So, perhaps I'll try to push over that limit too... If I could only think of a reasonable way to add 20 miles to my ride. Maybe finding a more bike friendly route for the last few miles of the ride.
