Biked in 22 states/provinces, bike-shared on four continents. Roof-rack foe.
Most of my life. Cycling has been my primary mode of transport for my adult life; I didn't even have a driver's license.
Never hooked up a cycle computer, so I wouldn't know, but I'm passing most people when I ride. I'd guess somewhere around 15 MPH.
I'm riding in the Climate Ride in May, and currently I don't think I'm quite up to it just yet -- particularly not given the hills (unknown in the Midwest). I'd like to do more inter-city tours, since I like riding with definite destinations.
