Only 8 months of cycling? You'll get many PRs in the next few months/years.
Yup, definitely looking forward to continuing improvements.

To say that this ride and your other PRs were all set during a group ride misses the point. If the group rode harder this time, then you got the benefit. If the group as a whole is speeding up as the riders get more fit later in the season, you got the benefit.

It may not be about bike, but in a group ride, it's the engines, not the engine - assuming that yours is good enough to keep from getting dropped.
Good point, I don't care to look that deep into it, it's just Strava lol I just thought it was interesting.
