The CX was on board our boat for six years. That's six years of sailing, which means traveling at 4.5 mph--no more than a fast walking pace. An unexpected consequence of this lifestyle came after we rebuilt the bike and began riding again: Normal traffic speeds seemed suicidally fast. We just weren't used to 55 mph anymore. Then we got on I-95 near Miami, Florida where the traffic flows at 90 mph and it seemed like the world had gone mad. These days we're back to normal recalibrated to the same death-defying speeds as everyone else!
