Average road speeds.
How much climbing in that? TBH its a bit variable unless your taking into account the route / wind / conditions etc.
As a general average thats 17.3 ish? Not bad, now try doing a 100k and averaging it 🙂 FWIW I’ve just completed my first winter training & ride 3 x per week and am averaging 18.2 over 70k, 18.7 over 50k on a calm sunny day, with about 800m of ascent / descent.Posted 5 years agoatlazMember
When I’m racing 50/60 miles my ave is around 27/28mph.
I second the 😯 . VERY impressive speed. Kristian House from Rapha Condor averaged around that on what looks like a time trial over 55km so kudos. Tony Martin managed about 29mph on the TdF final time trial over 43km too.
So probably worth calling British Cycling ASAP as it looks like you’re up with our best.Posted 5 years ago

So, road bike, 17.12 mile ride which I did in 58 mins & some seconds. Would you say that was reasonable or do I need to work on it? Wouldn’t say I was going flat out but had a sweat on. I’m not really a person who ‘trains’ as such but I just like to keep my fitness level up (a bit)Posted 5 years ago

TBH, it’s up to you, as long as you enjoyed it it OK.
I did 71 on Sunday with an ave of 19.2. When I’m racing 50/60 miles my ave is around 27/28mph.
Remember it all about enjoying your riding but riding the road is very different than riding your MTB.
