Welcome to our team. The best thing for speed would be intervals. Here is a link that may help:

I have also found the best way to get better on hills, is to simply ride hills. May I recommend the Horsey 100 in Kentucky.

Welcome to the team. I haven't posted in a very long time and it seems more than fitting that my first post is to welcome someone. I have been cycling for years but not actively. You will find that riding is an easy and mostly pain free way to lose weight. You will enjoy longer and longer rides and before you know it you will notice pounds coming off. There are many great people on this site and most definitely this team. I really hope that you will enjoy your time on this site and spread the spark.

Welcome to SparkPeople and this team,
I am fairly new to bicycling and have learned many valuable tips and techniques reading the posts on this forum including advise for steep hill climbs.
If I find that thread I will post a link here.

I am still working on averaging 12-15 mph but I do live in a place with lots of hills.
You may get more responses if you post on the General Discussion part of this forum with your specific question/s. Enjoy your sunshine rides!

Hi!
I just joined Spark and saw this team listed.
I recently restarted a regular bicyling regimen.
I'm lucky cuz I'm temporarily living in Irvine, CA.
My regular residence is in Sherwood, WI where it is roughly 10 below zero today. Don't think I'll be riding today. I'm 51 years young and I think I'm in reasonably good shape. Of course theres always room for improvement.

My goal is to increase my average speed. I'm at about 18mph for 30 miles if I'm riding on relatively flat terrain. Long hills kill me. I would like to reach a 25mph average. I think it's completely do-able but would like some suggestions if any one has some on how to accomplish that. I'm kinda stuck in a rut. I been riding a lot lately and hitting some good hills but can't seem to get any stronger or faster.

Help!!
