I’d never thought that possible that early inh the year, but today I already managed to achieve one goal for 2011: pushing my average [on a longer ride] over 17 mph. I did that new route I described in a previous post – 44 miles – in 2 hours and 32 minutes, which makes it an average of 17.3 mph. Part of that success, of course, must be attributed to the bike I rode, the Dancelli. That is definitely a faster bicycle than the Stevens on which I did that ride the first time. And, of course, I must admit this was just a first, and I need to do it again and again, and on different routes. But still, I’m quite happy about myself.
