Tried the local club run for the first time today. Supposed to be medium pace...17mph. 22-23mph on the flat, more like. Thorn Nomads aren't really made to go that fast, especially with guards, rack and full dynamo lighting rig. I can console myself with the fact that I may have been barely hanging on the back, but I was dragging 12lb more not-very- aerodynamic bike along! Proper racing bike next week if the council don't salt the roads again.
