I really cannot estimate my average speed when I am riding outside our village. When riding inside, it’s a leisurely ride most of the time that maybe 3 mph for my average speed. But when I am riding outside, it is faster and the speed is maintained otherwise the other cyclists will leave me behind. It’s definitely more than 5 mph but it’s difficult to estimate.
When it's rush hour here in Manila my pace would slow down considerably to between 5-8mph because if the volume of traffic and people walking everywhere. It's not advisable to ride here during the afternoon rush hour.
