The nicest thing about speed and average speed is that they are easy to measure.

What we really need is a "fun meter". I think that it could be easily done with some kind of sensors or electrodes in your helmet to detect the pleasure centers of your brain. Maybe the sensors would be located in your saddle. Anyway, if we only had an easy to use fun meter for bikes, that would change everything.
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
