    avs up

    been cycling now for 2/3 weeks (newbie), and my average speed has gone from 9.8 to 10.4 mph, my route is 2.3 miles, and mostly up hills on the road. dont think i'm doing to bad for a beginner!!
    i can only go out for about about half hour every night, family reasons.

    i love it, fresh air in the lungs, heart pumping, legs wobbly when i get off lol, seriously though, i have changed my way of eating, i eat all the carbs, protien, etc and i do feel loads better, not only on the inside but on the outside to, i feel cleaner for some stupid reason!!!
    i really feel like all the goodness from proper eating is pumping right through me.
    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I started a little slower than that, and in a few months I am now averaging 14-15 MPH on my MTB. I haven't ridden my commute on my road bike yet, I like the workout of hauling that chunk of steel. I have a 6 mile ride with a couple of decent hills. I wish I had improved as fast as you did, I'd be flying by now. Congrats, and keep going.
