Hi all, Iam new to cycling... Pardon me for asking a noob question... I realise my speed is v slow... Other ppl (on road bikes) paddle once already overtaken me by a few ten's of metres... My average speed is only around 9.5kph... I am a buibui riding a 20" Aleoca Foldable bike... So is it the bike issue or just my poor fitness level? And to ride on average 2 hours per trip, my bum feels sore... Especially the tailbone..... So changing to answer bike or bigger saddle helps?

Thanks!
I am guessing your saddle height is too low (typical mistake newbs make) and you are riding in a too high of a gear. I assumed your aleoca foldie has 6-7 gears, try riding on a low gear (1 or 2) and "spin" the pedals (meaning pedal fast, aka high cadence) instead of grinding on a high gear.
