I went biking last Saturday. I think I usually max out on the straightaways at 29.5 mph after which my lungs are left wheezing and burning after about a hundred yards. To give you perspective on this amazing feat, that is slightly below Lance Armstrong’s average over the whole 2141 mile Tour de France. Of course I wasn’t wearing those aerodynamic bike jerseys and lycra shorts, which, of course, is what makes all the difference. Yeah that sounds about right.
