My cadence is actually pretty bad naturally. On long rides it is about 90 RPM for the first 30-40 km when I'm worming up and then I switch to higher gears and it falls down to 80 (except hills and sprints). I remember that my time for solo century at this cadence was 5:30 including 2 stops to get food and water. The only time when I have higher cadence is when I going for shorter rides trying to get best average speed. Even in this case it is about 90.

But may be you're right and when I ride with that friend my cadence is even lower. I just did not pay attention to any measurements from those rides except of average power. That was really low at 100-120 watts.
