My average speed for riding to work is 27kph and my return is usually 29kph. I think this is around 15mph- anyone able to work it out?
It seems average speed is part of the 'Law of diminishing returns', you try harder and harder to go faster but that average rises slower and slower!.
For me the difference between a steady ride with some big gears thrown in and a small gear twiddle when tired/sick is only about 10 minutes apart.
But I do enjoy keeping an eye on the average!
