What's the difference between pace and speed?

Pace and speed both describe how fast you're moving. Runners generally use pace, while bicyclists commonly use speed.

Here are some examples that show equivalent pace and speed:

pace
speed
10 minutes / mile
6 miles / hour
9 minute mile
6 2/3 mph
7 minutes 30 seconds / mile
8 miles / hour

Training devices used for both running and biking should allow you to switch the display to show either pace or speed.
