 23.5 mph Commute! Next Day Was 25.53 mph!!
-extra fast 2nd work commute today
This afternoon commute was the 9th double commute day for 2019,

I managed a 25.53 mph average speed after a previous day record speed. The point was to safely manage a fast commute over 16+ miles. 25.53 mph was fast enough for me!

My performance relied on assistance from a Juiced CCX bike which has a 750 watt rear hub motor energized by a 52-volt battery pack with a 19.2 Amp-hour capacity. To be sure, my 234-pound heft indeed expends maximum effort to average that level of speed. Peak speed was more than 33 mph with hard pedaling.

After both commutes, whether the inbound or outbound portions, sweat dripped from the effort. My point is that ebikes allow any cyclist a choice for expending as much or as little effort as desired.

From my perspective, ebikes are a superior form of cycling. As a tool for fast commuting, a rider can expend as much or as little effort as desired, the electric assistance is there for the rider to utilize in any measure preferred. Further, an ebike is the ideal conditioning tool for aerobic and cadence training.
