20-22 mph is good cruising speed for a bike. With the bike I ride most, a reproduction of a '70s Schwinn Stingray, my cruising speed on level ground is usually about 14-15 mph. I also have a mountain bike (Diamondback Response) and I can cruise a little faster with that, maybe 18 mph.
once, going from 42 to 53.
