I carbed up on potatos, extended the saddle by 1/2″, oiled my bike chain, left the backpack behind (1.6kg), faced the wind, and gave it my all.
I not only did an average speed of 32.73kmph in my first leg of 12.54km but I also broke 23min on the same leg. Two numbers I have been targeting for some time.
Even better on the way back I did 24:08 for an average speed for 31.95kmph over 25km. Only 0.045kmph off my goal of doing an average speed of 32kmph over a 25km distance. After I get my average speed for 32kmph down over 25km I will start working toward 35kmph over a 25km distance.
Here are the two cycle legs.
