FWIW, I've never bothered to keep track of my average speed. I don't have a speedo on my commuting bike, nor on Disco. I just ride on a level of effort basis.

One of the reasons is that my speed varies a lot based on wind, air density, and all kinds of factors that change from day to day, so the comparisons are difficult.

Probably the biggest difference is the way *I* feel that particular day. Some days, I'm feeling my oats ... other days, not so much.
