Thursday, August 04, 2005I got to ride my new bike for the first extended trip today. I went the usual 20 mile trip, and it took me 66 minutes. Yup, that's 18.2mph. With winds up to 25 mph today, I had to fight a bit for the first 3 miles and the last 5 miles (it's a big circle, folks), so that's a pretty respectable speed. In fact, I am fairly happy with it. Add to that my legs don;t feel like I rode at all, and I am positively giddy about my new bike.
