Thanks Strava

I agree that the av is prob too high for the measured distance but it will put everyone in the same boat.


Is your garmin set to "smart recording" as that may be the problem, try setting it to every second makes it loads more accurate for small segments. As with your segment the start and end it only logged your speed once every 4 seconds.

Decent ol pace on that segment though!

Does make you wonder. Took the 5yr old out on his bike along the Thames towpath the other weekend. We averaged below 10km/h, covered half a dozen segments and weren't last on any of them. Weren't first either, but that's not the point!

I managed a last place on a segment near me. It goes along the coast road, throws a U-turn and heads back in the other direction. Apparently if you carry on a bit further down the road, turn off, go home for the night and forget to turn off your GPS, you'll pick up the second half of the segment next morning. I had a stellar average speed of about 0.01 mph.

One day, if I train hard, I might be able to beat that.

It works both ways...

Hit Lidl Camera @28.9, rising to 30 after 10 seconds then the next 20 were all above 30 (max 31.7) and it flagged my run at average 28.5! I would have expected a 30 or 30.5 av on that.

Can't wait to see what Tamas got as I was chasing him down on that segment :D

Pre Lidl run

Took me ages to make that segment as for some reason Strava kept dragging it around Bricklayers and making it into one similar to the second run!

Oh right. Post Lidl's a bit rubbish as involves going through a major junction, and I don't go that way anyway. Might make one from Lidl to the Bricklayers traffic lights.

LOL - same time as Tamas even though if you look at both our traces, he barely touches 30 & I'm over it most of the way.

We also went over to Whitechapel Road and hit Altab Ali Speed Trap where he got a 3rd Overall, but it didn't show on his achievements :(

He had to do the catching up there, hence why a better time than I ;)

I might revisit that little section there...
Nice ride today, glad that I wasn't rushing to work.

Are you talking about this? Where are you getting these numbers? Your speed graph never gets over 29mph that I can see, so I don't see why 28.5mph would be an unreasonable average.
