*Sep 13, 2002 7:14 PM* | | (18 x 5280) x (1/56 x 60)/5280 =19.28 mph |

*Sep 13, 2002 7:20 PM* | | or more simply:
60 / 56 * 18 |

*Sep 14, 2002 8:26 AM* | | Math lesson #1 Speed = Distance / Time Hence the term miles per hour Distance = 18 miles Time = (well this needs to be in hours) so 56/60=.933 So speed would be 18/.933 which = 19.29 miles per hour |

*Sep 14, 2002 10:20 AM* | | For any info relating to average speed, distance travelled, etc. use the formula "D = ST", where D is Distance, S is Speed, T is Time in hours. If you have two of the numbers you can always find out the third, e.g., D/T = S.
For your example, D=18 miles, T=.93 hours.
18/.93 = 19.35 mph |

*Sep 15, 2002 4:40 AM* | | miles/(hours+(minutes/60)+(seconds/3600))
This is the formula I use in my spreadsheet bikelog. Lets say you rode 25 miles in 1:21:15
25/(1+(21/60)+(15/3600))=18.46.... |
