Ha! I have made the same mistake many times. Once I went on a 50-mile solo ride and was feeling particularly studly because I averaged 20 mph for the first 20 miles. Then I made a turn and realized that I had been riding with a tailwind. The ride back was brutal and I think my final average speed was about 17.5 mph.
