Pretty sure the middle school gang of boys that cruises the greenway behind my house looking for fun/trouble goes that fast.

I'm out.

LOL, well in @burnthesheep defense. I'm with him and I'm not the fastest around, just another old, fat man. But a typical normal daily ride is 25-27 miles over varying grades with an easy avg pace of 18 mph and a hard pace that'll sneak over 20 mph. Yet I get passed often enough around here. I'd not consider the mentioned speeds by the OP that fast either. Not meaning to offend, just being honest. Still great story and one we've all experienced and can relate too. It really doesn't matter the speed. There's always someone faster.
