A reasonable cyclist can do often do about 20 to possibly 25 mph cruising speed on a good straight flat road. If you're going downhill you can go faster - 30mph fairly easily. If you have a really good racing bike people have been known to exceed 45mph on a good staight downhill stretch of road with a favourable wind. The only problem is getting up the hills!(Original post by imasillynarb)
No, anyone taking up part of the road and going 10 miles an hour are a nuisance. Its nothing to do with how good you are at cycling
Anyway if you're cycling you're not damaging the environment and it also improves you're general fitness. A win-win situation

Yeah, and then you're a nuisance to pedestrians!
Besides, most main roads have cycle lanes.

As a driver I hate people who cycle on the roads, its so much hassle and they cause so many problems...now that I drive Id never cycle on the road again, as I realise how easy it is to get ploughed down

Pick the pavement, unless you have bad control, though i suppose hitting people is better than hitting cars.
