Default Power

I have some information on power development he

http://www.cyclingpowerlab.com/cyclingpoweroutput.aspx

Using this information it appears that I'm making over 200 watts on a good day.

I did 22 miles on Thursday with one long 6% climb and four over 5% humps in an hour and 25 minutes. After a short break I continued into a 25 knot wind right on the nose for another 6 miles and then a hard climb up to 1,000 feet with up to 11% recorded max grade (though these three hard grades measure 12% as often as hot.)

I got home with 42 miles and a riding time of 3 hrs and 22 minutes and a total of 2,404 feet of climbing for an average speed of 12.2 mph.

I was wondering if my average speed was including my breaks so I installed MapMyRide and checked my average speed that way. I got pretty near the same average speed. This leaves me wondering how the hell that people tell me that they do a flat ride that crosses about 20 stop lights and get an average speed of 17 mph.
