Average speed: 20.8km/h
My first ride lasted all of ten minutes! My initial feeling was of disbelief that I could go so fast for so little effort, and I did several loops around my street. I only did a short ride as I was playing squash that evening, and felt fine on the bike, but I was breathless as soon as I got off and had to sit down for a long time to recover!
