It's indeed something you need to build up. I also always take pictures of the new A4. That also helps, because when you take pics you also take breaks

I think I've found the difference

Unless the wind is being annoying I like to keep it around 40 km/h :P. I like to take sprints
But when there's wind my speed totally collapses, I do have to admit that. Last time: 6 Bft: max speed: around 8 km/h...

I don't have a speedometer though, that was stolen at my school about 3 years ago. I haven't had a new one since. I estimate my speed by comparing it to other cars and cyclists.

neither i don't have it anymomre, the cables have meshed into the wheel-wires
about the wind - i don't cycle when it's windy i think i have Cw around 0,90

oh yes, and i have mountain hardtail bike, so not for speeding actually. rarely i reach 40 (only on descents). my maximum is 62, but it was short road, steep as hell, and my friends kept guard for eventually oncoming vehicles.

I usually do about 50 km but it is quite hilly around here which makes it much harder tho. I wanted to cycle to Croatia this summer but I am still not sure if there will be anybod who would go with lol, but at least I want to do well-known Passau-Vienna-Bratislava route.

I once overtook one of those 45 km/h cars in The Netherlands

And I always break the 30 km/h speed limit in our street. 30 km/h speed limit but there's still asphalt, only a few speed bumps

Well, I have 65kg, but I am a Computer geek, so physical condition, not my strong side
I can do a lot of walking, the case also when I visit a place for hours.
Cycling, so and so, but long strech running terrible .

This can be great too! But I just want to actually get to the coast from Slovakia just for that great feeling. It is about 500 km to Koper or Rijeka so it would take me about 5 days I think, well and if I was too tired in hilly Slovenija I would just probably take train from Ljubljana.

I did 10 km on foot yesterday in Belgrade (I've measured my distance after that on google maps).

One bike in the snow and one bike in the green green grass of Holland. That´s a very special bike indeed....

cycling? who needs all those physical efforts and sweating...


j/k! I also have a bike and like doing some 15-20 km a day or more sometimes. But I usually don't have the time, so I use more often the scooter

I did once 16 km (with longer pauses though) in Hanoi - with a broken ankle!

Now I often do (around twice a month) 10-20 km long trek in the mountains with 1000-1700 m of height difference (sometimes even more) - even after work.

Also at skiing my official (www.skiline.cc) one-day record is over 11000 height meters in 75 km distance. I hope that ski resorts in France will introduce that kind of statistics too.

Sporting is fun!

Me too, I did 30 km/h on a 20 km/h street . My personal record is 63.3 km/h (almost 40 mph), but that was going down this grade. And this road is blocked by E07 motorway and I have to go up or down to get through it, so I can say I have clinched some kilometers of E07/A-23 by bike! .
