    Been trying to get my commute time down below 45min (9.10 miles apox), it normally takes 50-55 min because of traffic and lots of traffic lights. Today the god of green lights was with me and the little less traffic because of school hols, I managed to do my commute in 43min 49 sec and improve my avg speed to 12.54mph which isnt to bad for me and my weight (17st).

    so a big Hussar to me :smile:

    Biggest factor in my high-speed commute isn't really the wind, but how favourable the lights and traffic islands are.

    I don't have any lights, just really really big hills.

    i have 2 hills but 5 roundabouts (if you count a double mini as 1 roundabout!) well done on getting to your target. now be a bit more ambitious!! my old commute used to take me 45 minutes when i started out, i used to be able to get it down to just above 25 minutes! never broke the 25 minute mark though :sad:

    I've not been checking times for the commute, since work moved around Xmas. I've just kept my eye on cadence. However I've just got my first android phone and discovered Strava.
    I've got the commuter in for a service and decided to use the 'Sunday Bike', so now I've got benchmark times, out and back. Felt faster than normal, so it's going to be fun trying to beat it on the usual steed!
    Seems I'm pretty constant though
    Out - 14 miles / 52:11 /average 16.1mph
    Back - 13.4 miles / 50:11 / average 16mph
    First target 16.5mph, out and back
