That's 24 MPH, or 38 KMH which is a respectable pace. However, road cycling is mainly about endurance, so it'd be more relevant to know what pace you can maintain over one hour or so instead.

If I can ride 1.5 miles in 4 min is that a good pace for road cycling?

1.5m in 4min =36km/hr which is about the average speed of a bike race (at the lowest amateur level) for about 2hrs or so. Nothing special, but its good for you ;-D

If you can ride 1.2 miles in 2 min is that a good pace for road cycling?

1.2 miles in 2 minutes would equal 36 MPH, or 58 km/h. On flat ground and no significant wind that's a very decent sprint speed. But most disciplines of cycling are more about endurance than sprinting, so unless you go for track cycling what speed you can maintain for a longer duration is more important. Somewhere around 25 MPH would be a more reasonable pace for a longer training run.

Where is venue for cycling?

anywhere you can ride a bike, public roads, mountain biking trails in Forrest parks ect, but venue to me suggests you want to know about a velodrome which is the 'venue' for track cycling meets. contact a local cycling club to find your nearest one, and ideas on good places to ride (cycle) outdoors. The oval shaped track commonly used for time trials is called a "Velodrome". This is a wooden track where a track cyclist would ride. The bikes used are usually made of carbon fibre, have no brakes and are fixed wheel (you cannot freewheel). If you are into cycling, it is a great alternative to your usual road session, although a little daunting at first!!
