I used run regularly, but recently picked up biking and enjoyed that much more for staying in shape. I just purchased a Trek 7200fx bike to meet my needs. I am considering a tri or duathlon. I was a lifeguard in college, so the swin portion doesn't bother so much as not having a pool to regularly train in (which is why I'm considering a duathlon instead). My question is....what is the average speed for most bike riders in these events? I'm not looking to win, just to stay close to the pack, finish and enjoy the race. With my 7200fx without aerobars or pedal clips or straps, I'm averaging almost 14mph over a 15 mile ride. I'm looking to compete next spring or summer, so I have time to improve, but wanted to know what speed I should be looking to be able to maintain. Thanks for any help.
