I mentioned awhile back that I've been trying to ride harder to make up for the lower weekly distances. At the time I was quite proud of myself for having averaged 14 mph for a ride for the first time since since 1993. The best ride I had in '93 had averaged 14.5 mph. I finally managed to break that record last month with a 14.6 mph ride.
Tonight I did sixteen miles at 15.1 mph! Way to go leg muscles!
Of course, in the midst of my ride I was passed by a guy on road bike who went by me like he was Lance Armstrong. It's all a matter of perspective.
