I am embarrassingly slow, but not yet fit, and only been back in the saddle a few months... Last weekend I did and early morning ride starting just after 7.00 am, as I was getting the bike out of the car an even older couple of joggers went past me... the ride is 15 km all up hill rising 581 meters... and steep in places... anyway it was 30 minutes before I passed the couple... then 20 minutes later when I stopped for water they passed me..devils... off I went again and passed them..this continued till I got the the top of the hill and they came in 10 minutes after me... 1 hour 45 minutes in all... my saving grace was that it took me only 31 minutes to get back down...they had to walk it..

So yes I'm in the slow club.. but getting better, the same ride at the beginning of my current quest took me 2 hours 25 minutes up and 37 minutes down.... so unlike you guys I'm getting faster
