I can't believe how slow I am.

Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

I can't believe how slow I am.

Trade rides with the others. If you are slower no matter what you are riding it is not the bike.

Lift the bike and spin the tires, one at a time. I suspect one or both of the wheels is spinning poorly, whether because of bad bearings, not enough lube, or adjustment.
