Someone made a youtube vid of part of my work commute.

Its a poor quality vid and I don't know if its interesting to anyone but me and maybe the vid maker.

I'm too scared to ever go faster than 30mph on this hill. I think 32mph is the fastest I've ever gone down it. I'm use the brakes so I don't go too fast.

Too shakey for my brain. And certainly too shakey and fuzzy to see the speeds. Not to mention I kept waiting for him to go into terminal speed wobble mode from the twitches he did have.

The SUV that could well have missed seeing the careening rider and pulled out?

I'm sure you could sprint 29.5 on a flat, is that scary?
