I am primarily a road cyclist. I don't know what advanced rider means. I've been riding for a number of years, but never been after speed. In summer I ride with the MS Bicycle Response Team of the Northwest Piedmont. So Saturdays during summer I usually ride for the Tour to Tanglewood training rides.
16 MPH give or take. Distances vary depending on time of year :-). Comfortable with rides in the 60 mile range when season is good and running. Typically ride 50-55 depending on the group. Longest ride 80 miles (I need a modest-paced century).
Do mountain bike sometimes, love it, but am not very good at it!
Safety in numbers for sure! Looking for some more group rides.
I'm not as fast as I once was! Feeling positively slow these days :-)! But riding keeps me happy and sane!
