Tips for chasing an average speed

-pretend it’s the last 20k of the tour of flanders & you’re holding off the peleton

-don’t get lost

-don’t have to use a very muddy lane and cross a ford

-ignore the pain from your legs

-go at least one harder gear up than you think you need

-spin spin spin those legs!

-make split second decisions at junctions

-sprint past other riders

-don’t go down a gear before hills, go up a gear and sprint!

-push push push!

i was successful, an average of 15mph, rubbish really but my previous best was below this and the route was quite lumpy (and wet, and muddy)
ride 41
22 miles
