Part of his sentence should be at least a temporary ban from that trail, and make him pick up trash along it on the weekends, when he’d rather be out riding. Others could ride by and wave to him.

Are you asking if a mid level race bike is faster than a hybrid on the road?

Yes.

With 2 flat tires? Still yes.

What if it were a race bike from 1975? Yes
1950? Yes
