    Are coffee shops known for high strength oscillating magnetic fields?

    26 miles in 1:36 hours = ~16.25 mph

    16.25mph is roughly equal to 26 kilometers per hour

    No... they're known for collecting environmentalist and liberal fcuktards that whine and moan about anything and everything intead of getting on with the tast at hand - which in that instance is going and brewing a proper cup of coffee. :p

    Wow. You sound a lot like Campybob.

    FYI, you can't get a proper cup of coffee at a coffee shop.

    As a liberal environmentalist (and caffiene addict), I've been to quite a few coffee shops in different places, and have found some good and some bad ones. Now if you'd said "you can't get a good cup of coffee at Starbucks", I'd be in total agreement:)

    No, focus on cadence, and increasing power at a good cadence 90-100 rpm. Have you driven a standard transmission car ? Do you try to keep it in 4th or 5th gear no matter what ? No, you shift according to the terrain & speed, so that the engine stays turning at an efficient rate. On the bike, you are the engine. If you have a speedometer, you can sometimes see your speed will increase as you shift into an easier gear if you have been in too hard a gear.

    And 16.25 miles per hour = 25.7 kilometres per hour.

    The guy probably has the computer set to km and not miles.

    Oh Redneck, don't worry. You need not explain, nobody's gonna ask you for a urine test. 26 miles at 26mph is possible. Spartacus did it regularly.

    Just wondering if it's your first time, does your butt hurt? You know, virginity can be painful..

    Sounds like it was an awesome ride Redneck! I did 20 miles today on a stationary at the gym. I think it took me around 70 minutes or so. The only bad thing about riding a stationary is there are no downhills to coast on. :D

    My bicycle calculater says that is 0.406 horsepower. That is a lot, even for a world class biker, I would think.

    Sometimes we mess with people's minds by attaching an extra computer magnet to their wheel.

    And they don't notice when doing a routine tire pressure check or something like that?

    Maybe they're so thrilled with their new-found speed that they're afraid to look :)
