Got started again with a few sporadic 4 mile jaunts over the past two weeks, then commuted 11 miles throughout one day. My knee was a bitch the day after... we'll see if sticking it out will help that out.
16 miles of college commuting, 5 back and forth to a store. I might go for a quick 18 mile night ride if the storms hold back.
BTW: I normally average 19-21mph on my road bike, but averages depends on wind conditions, terrain, bike setup, etc.
How about the slope of the terrain ridden? North Georgia has a lot of challenging rolling hills... Rode 5.5 miles today commuting. Lungs are getting better (slower to get winded, but still slow coming back down). There's a moderate yet long hill halfway there that absolutely destroys my legs and leaves me worthless the rest of the trip.
