Caught speeding

Hippy:

You got it right. As one can imagine, a route can be a combination o
uphills, downhills and flat terrain. Different sections of the route ar
ridden (cruised if long enough) at different speeds. That's why w
usually use average speed as a generally better indicator

My average speed on the round commute trips lately is 27.1. If I didn'
imply that my average speed is high 40's, then there's no need for yo
to be sarcastic about it

Cheers, Amir

If he's cruising around at high 40's on normal streets and his speedo i
calibrated correctly he should be contacting the AIS and asking when th
Olympic squads are being picked

You didn't say your average speed was mid-high 40's, you said:
"Now that I commute with a roadie, on the same road, I have reached
high 60's , but cruise at mid-high 40's every day".

That makes it sound like you 'meant' your average speed, which is why
Rich mentioned the UCI ITT speeds and suggested you were on
a downhill or tailwind assisted section of road.

I was merely pointing out to Ritch that the poster (you?) was probably
NOT talking about his whole trip but a "section" of road and it really
could be possible for "mid-high 40's" for "that section of road".

Basically, I was defending, what you had said a little unclearly and
taking the **** for it at the same time. Sorry if I caused offence.

No offence was taken, Hippy. This is a trivial matter so let's let it go. :)
