London to Southend


Sam Simpson

I did the ride yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it - what a
pleasant route! (ok, apart from the last 15 miles which
feels like one big gentle incline with a few "proper hills"
thrown in for good measure!).

What's a reasonable time for this ride? (on a racer, not a
mountain bike) I've only started cycling for 3 months (and
have done precisely "zero" cardio for the last 13 or so
years!) and completed it in 3:40 for an average speed of
just over 15mph. Better than I expected!

What kind of speed should I be looking for next year?
