New Personal Best

I don't measure my average mph against other riders but, I do use my average mph as a barometer for my personal fitness. I realize it is inaccurate but, it works for me.

The best I have ever been able to do on a 20+ mile ride is 14.3 mph. Today I was able to complete my 20.6 mile ride at 15.6 mph.

Excellent job. I use a 18 mi. TT to check my progress and think it is a valid measurement.
