AWESOME! Especially for early season rides. I never hit my straps until about the 3rd or 4th ride...

Good for you! You will be a speed demon by the end of the summer. I bet you did some strength training over the winter, that must have helped.

That is a great speed and cadence... especially over hills and this early in the season! What great news...

Hope you love your new, almost, bike! emoticon

I finally took my Trek 5500 out today and hit the road for the first time this season. I only got to ride a few times last year before the Winter snows ruined things. Before that, I hadn't ridden in well over 20 years.

I went 42.25 miles in local hill country with an average speed of 15.5 MPH (both new PRs) today! Actually, my cadence seemed to hover right around 75 - 80, which is also a personal best (so far) for me. I just had to share that with some people who understand. I'm totally psyched about this year's riding! I'm also really happy that the weight training seems to be paying dividends!
