Sorry i havent posted, i was on a school trip from mon to fri :)

i know cxwrench missed me but alas i am here now

my question is:

how do i improve my avg. speed up to 15mph minimum? I see many people's profile on starva and they are doing 21mph and it makes me feel depressed how they can do an extra 20 miles in less time than me.

whats your guys tips on this?

I would say 80% of it is half mental. Focus and remember...no matter where you go, there you are. Like Lance said..."be the ball Danny."

I would just add a few miles to the end of each ride to bring that average down. Alternatively, you could start your rides a little later.

I like the little parachutes you can strap to your waist.
That's a good idea, if my current average speed is 21mph how much slower do I need to ride on average to get to 15mph.
Right now my bike is in the basement I want to ride outside, what should I do?

Start your bike computer before you put your bike clothes on & check the pressure in the tires. Turn it off after you get out of the shower and have a snack.

This is time you are in the biking mode and I don't know why people don't figure this in their dayly time spent biking. I do.

Good idea but if I do this will people on Strava bully me and say i'm cheating? I think a lot of people hate me because of my average speed already and I don't want to make it worse, what should I do?
