I know the meaning of the following English expressions:
a brisk pace, a fast pace, a rapid pace, an even pace, a steady pace, a frantic pace, a hectic pace, a grueling pace, a killing pace, a slack pace, a slow pace, a sluggish pace, a snail’s pace, at a certain pace, at a fast pace.
I got in a difficult position with the interpretation of the expression “decent pace”.
Would you be kind enough to explain to me the meaning of the expression in bold in the following excerpt from an English text in order to get out of the “Sherwood Forest.”?
“Some riders like to touch the back brake just before they hit the front brake - it's more of a sport bike technique, but that can actually minimize the forks from compressing too much and keeps your bike a little more settled as you're going into a turn. The smoother you are, the easier it is to shift gears and do other things that are involved with handling and moving your bike along at a decent pace.”
I make a guess interpreting the expression in question as “tempered pace”, “moderate pace”, “easy pace” or “light pace”.
Thank you for your efforts.

No. "Decent pace" means quick pace. "Decent" means fairly quick.
