Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Whats your RPM at?

This means smart riders don't climb hills. It will lower your average.

my ave cadence is usually in the 80s for a 2-4 hour ride, lower if I climb a lot. 90+ if its all flat. My max in ~145 now, I've been working on it.
