thanks for the info.42 Km’s on an indoor bike are nothing like the same distance outside, outside I would expect that distance to be done in about 2 hours ish , doing it in an hour will have world tour teams chasing your signature, closely followed by UCI testers wanting blood and urine samples

Thanks for the info mate.Distance on an indoor trainer has to be taken with a pinch of salt. So I wouldn’t worry about trying to compare it to anyone else. It’s meaningless. Good luck getting that distance under an hour on your trainer.
Thanks for the Info Sharky. Very interesting. Need to get a bike firstIn the world of UK timetrials, courses are such that you start and finish close together. This means that head/tail winds are compensated, as to is the gradients. This gives a reasonable metric for comparing yourself to other riders across the country.
So if you can beat 20mph (30mins)on an out and back 10 mile course, you have done a good ride.
Recommend joining a club and riding a few 10 mile timetrials. A good club rider will be aiming for 24 mins (25mph) and a top UK rider would be close to 20mins.
Thanks for information Ian. Very useful indeed.Good evening,
If you go to https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/find-a-course you can find a time trial course near to you, hopefully.
As these courses are just routes on public roads you can ride them yourself whenever you like.
Once you have found a course, you will find that it has a code something like K46/10. You can then search for that course code and local club's time trials results to see how you compare. As nowadays many casual triathletes also do these events so you won't just see times set by dedicated TTers on expensive dedicated TT bikes.
I agree with the 20/25mph comments above, but 20mph is faster than it sounds so don't be surprised if you get onto the road and find it initially unachievable.
Just googled Cycling time trials and it says ...I agree with the above posters.... ask around where you live and you may find a local club running a weekly evening 10. This would give you a completely realistic measure and is also a good social thing.
You don't have to join a club (pretty sure not) if you prefer to wait a while but you will have to have third party insurance to enter a time trial from the likes of the CTC.
TBH I don't really understand the numbers you've posted.
