Werd. Averaging 25mph isn't THAT big of a deal around here in the land of the flat, but considering how much climbing they do, its crazy how fast they are. Remember, they're scaling 2 mountain ranges.

Short answer to whats fast?: 13 mph....up a 10% grade....for 8-10 miles....after 16 days of riding = 1800 miles.
